A search for the production of charged scalars has been carried out in e+e- annihilation at center of mass energies up to 64 GeV with 61.1 pb-1 of integrated luminosity using the VENUS detector at TRISTAN. The assumptions concerning the production and decay of hypothetical charged scalars are minimal; they are expected to be singly charged and decay into a pair of fermions. No positive evidence for their production has been found in a study of all combinations of the ℓν(ℓν) and UD(UD) decay channels. We have excluded the mass region of 8.0-20.0 GeV/c2 regardless of the decay mode.
