    Extract all the special characters from each cell

    Is there any way to extract/identify all the special characters from a cell?

    I have found somethings (External Link) , but that only tells if cell has any special character, however I need to know/collect all the special characters.

    I want to populate the results in a column, so that I could review those.

    Looking for your great support!

    @jindon -- It's working flawlessly, however I was expecting a UDF which I could use anywhere/anytime. Can you please help me to learn that?
