Hi, I would suggest you to use REGEX function to remove the Special characters in the data. Syntax: REGEXP(original_text:text, regexp:text, replacement_regexp:text):text For example, to remove the special characters in “value@like~panda” you could use: REGEXP('value@like~panda','[^0-9a-zA-Z]+','') As an alternative, I would also use the Replace function to remove the Special characters. You can also refer the section “REGEX ” and “REPLACE” in [Advanced VQL Guide]( Hope this helps.
