Convert characters to ASCII code

Hello friends (@balupad14 , @Florent_Salendres )
I would like to convert a string into ASCII code, in order to replace some special characters contained in the string.
Can you please tell me how to do that in UiPath?
Thanks,
it’s very urgent.

In case I have a string…I need to check if some special characters are present in it.
How to get the numeric format of the special characters inside a list?
Thanks,
Cami

did u need to get the asci code of special charcters? @CamiCat

I am not cleared with your point?

in short:
ASC - returns ASCII Code for a character
CHR - returns Character for an ASCII Code
last line filters out the characters not rated as wanted

So it depends on your definitions / allowed Ascii codes that you want to rate as valid

Maybe be used for some reports:

Thanks @ppr .
The last function returns all the special characters in a string?
Is there a function that retrieves only special characters?

Thanks a lot,
I’m quite arrived at the solution

@CamiCat
on the statements ending with a toList is returning a List of the affected Datatype (we also do see it in the screenshot).

has a relation to above mentioned

In some cases we can work with the provided functions of the char datatype. e.g.
