I am looking for a function in CFScript that can check whether or not a string is alphanumeric or not.  Could anyone help me?

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>
