If the number of special characters that appear are consistent and limited in number, you could use function STRIP to remove them, or functions STRREP/CTRAN to replace them with another character (e.g., space). You would need to apply STRIP or STRREP/CTRAN for each individual character that might appear in the string. That's why this approach is best suited for a limited number of special characters.
