Hmm, thanks for that information; however;

it does not answer the question of how the user did this,
he did NOT put a Q in front, he also, did NOT as others had mentioned
type letters that looked like numbers - and as qsecofr
I cannot do what this user can do, nor can I do this same
thing as myself.  It also does not matter how I try to change
the password (chgpwd/chgusrprf/edtusrprf).

Also, we have one other user who has been able to do this
using chgpwd, NO Q preceding as the security manual states - 

This user also has secadmin auth, but does not have allobj,
but the first user that made this happen does have allobj due
to the wonder of a canned package that we have been unable 
to limit the way it processes yet - I'm still working on them
on this-like most software vendors..

So since it really is ALL numeric, and there is NO preceding Q and 
no preceding alphabetic character, how can these only two users
be doing this and as myself it will not work that way 
(with a Q I can-but they do not use it)
- my concern: is our security "working"???

as stated previously, V4R4, most recent cumm/hyper/DB/blah..blah..blah.. 

TIA

Put a Q in front of the number and you can log in using just the number.
