M204.1751  Invalid alphanumeric edit pattern (token): missing "!" character

The edit pattern contains a non-alphanumeric insertion character which is not preceded by an escape character (!). Any character other than A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and blank must be preceded by an escape character. If the processing direction is from right to left, the escape character must appear to the right of the insertion character.

Response: Place an escape character before each non-alphanumeric insertion character in the edit pattern.
