    Use the TRANSLATE function to replace alphabetic characters with empty strings. Whatever is left are special characters.

    Are numeric digits considered "special"?
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
