While saving you can check for the existence of these characters in accna and if found, not allow user to save it.

If "\" $ accna OR "/" $ accna OR ":" $ accna && for all characters you want to restrict
  MessageBox("Invalid characters found in the account name")
  Return .f.
ELSE
  Return .t.
ENDIF
