Controls how special characters in unstructured application documents are treated.
SET SPECIALSCAN ON|OFF
The SET SPECIALSCAN command is set ON by default.
When SPECIALSCAN is ON, the backslash () and asterisk (*) characters have special meanings when they appear in an unstructured application document that is being used as a data source in an ADD or CHANGE command. Setting SPECIALSCAN to OFF causes the backslash and asterisk to be treated as normal characters by these commands.
