SQL Asst interpreting Text

Hello,
I have a column with the following text

MUTMIJQHYDTYL?*/*&&&%@/*$?!-

When I try
SELECT * FROM TABLENAME WHERE COLUMNNAME = 'MUTMIJQHYDTYL?*/*&&&%@/*$?!-'

SQL Asst throws "Unmatched, or nested, comment delimiters in query" error. I have no issues running the same query from bteq or a JDBC client. So this is an issue only when I use SQL Asst.

When I remove the /* from the text I am searching for(which are comment delimiters) the query runs fine in SQL Asst(obviously doesn't match what I am looking for but atleast I don't get the error). Is there a way to force SQL Asst not to interpret the text within quotes or is there a way to escape the offending characters?

Thanks.
