Use of / in find and replace script

Using FileMaker Pro 14.

 

I regularly have to carry out a Find and Replace just for the following character: /

 

If you I do a manual Find/Replace (Command + Shift + F) I can enter the / character without any qualification (ie just as).

 

Because I do the same Find/Replace regularly I would like to create a script with the Perform Find/Replace script step.

 

However, entering the / character into the find box leads to the following message:

 

"A number, text constant, field name or “(” is expected here."

 

A search in the Filemaker help manual does not appear to provide an answer.

 

Would another Filemaker user know how to search for the / character?
