Restricting special characters in text field

Hi Friends,

I've a scenario where I need to restrict special characters such as (@,!<,>,?,+,=, %,#,(,),/,\,&,£,€,$, "") in text field. But it should accept alpha numeric character, white space & characters such as this (Á, Ñ, í, ó). Please help me with validation rule for this scenario.

Many Thanks

Thanks Satish_SFDC!  Indeed, I used REGEX, But I was looking out for perfect pre-defined classes, which I got it. Here is the expression with pre-defined class that will solve the scenario
[\\p{L}\\s\\d]*$

Many Thanks,
Logesh

You can use the CONTAINS Function or the REGEX to go ahead with this requirement.
