How to search for a question mark character "?"

I understand that Quicken uses the ? character as a wildcard. How does one search for the literal question mark character, or "?" in a memo? Tried enclosing it in double or single quotes, but doesn't work for me. Is there a specific syntax to have Quicken not treat the search character as a wildcard?

    Try quoting the question mark with a backslash. Search for \?

    Where are you doing the search?
    Most likely Quicken isn't consistent about this.
    I tried in the Global search at the top right of Quicken and \? works there.

  • Thanks, but it didn't work for me.
    Tried \?, "\?", '\?', \"?", and \'?'.
    Also /?, "/?", '/?', /"?", and /'?'. No luck.

  • Ahhh, my bad. I had tried forward slash in the global search box, but then moved to an in-account search box for all the other combinations. \? works in the global search box. Thanks for deducing my error and thanks to Rocket J Squirrel for the initial correct answer!
