Hi. I am trying to enter a Canadian postal code for a phone order, and I am not able to get the alpha key to work. I am not sure I am doing it correctly. Could you tell me the steps?

I contacted my processor and was told that the Canadian Alpha-numeric postal codes can't be entered in 3200 & 3700 machines and to just press "enter" to bypass it. It worked but it must have been too complicated to put this important bit of info in the manual for some reason [it's not in there] as we spent a couple of hours trying to find it in there before calling for help. Hope this helps.
