I am assuming from your comment that I need to submit the
SET ESCAPE OFF
To the session as it starts. Since the things I am doing is in the schema editor, unless there is a place to do this automatically as the connection is made then I don’t know
how to submit this before cloning the user.
I have gone ‘round and ‘round trying to identify where this can be automatically done in Toad.
Am I missing the forest for the trees?

Yes – tis is a simple SQLPlus scripting setting issue. You need to escape the $ and \ characters – which is a SQLPlus command that Toad adheres to SET ESCAPE

Subject: [Toad World - Oracle Discussion Forum] cloning user via toad
We use domain authentication for our developers to access the databases. To do this I create a username of this type:
When I clone that user I get several notificaitons that the script has an illegal character. I am thinking it is either the backslashes or dollar signs. I end up just scripting out the source
user, doing a gloabl cut-and-paste of the username and running the script which of course works without errors. Has anybody else seen this behaviour?
