I would interpret this as meaning you can set 'Partitions' when you
create a user, but you can't change it later using 'modify' as it is
then only a 'where option'.

So it looks to me like you need to delete your user and recreate it with
the desired partition.

Cheers,

Loris

PS: In your example you have a typo: MONTHLLY1 with double 'L' - don't
let that trip you up.
