You can use a regular expression like:

      <cfset foundAt = reFind("[^0-9a-zA-z]", string)>
       ... OR
       <cfset foundAt = reFind("[\W]", string)>  


Example

<cfset string = "!absdfsdfsdfsdfsdf3213">

<cfset foundAt = reFind("[^0-9a-zA-z]", string)>

<cfif foundAt eq 0>

	AlphaNumeric

<cfelse>

	Non-AlphaNumeric characters detected

</cfif>
