    Default FedEx needs 2-char code for Canadian provinces

    Hi,

    I finally got the FedEx module completely working for the US, so I can generate a FedEx shipping label with one button. When I try to do the same for a Canadian customer, I get an error message that it needs a 2 letter code for the province. When you try to edit the shipping address, it gives you a menu of full province names, no way to enter a 2-letter abbreviation.

    I suspect the FedEx module needs to have a table to convert the full name to the code FedEx requires.

    For FedEx ground, the message is :
    ERROR: FedEx Return Error F84A : Invalid recipient province code for Canada

    for FedEx overnight, you get :
    ERROR: FedEx Return Error 8027 : State or province abbreviation must be two characters.

    Anybody know how to fix this?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Make sure your sending the zone_code not the zone_name.

    First, I'm just using the module as is, I didn't write it. Second, it works for the
    US, and I don't want to break that.

    It looks like the actual variable name is zone_id, not zone_code, and it seems there is a line in fedex.php that looks that up, but I am no php expert.

    Thanks,

    Jon
