When generating a certificate of request, you may get an error when submitting your request to a certificate authority, such as Thawte or Verisign, if you use an array of type Text.

For Example, using Thawte's verification test, submitting a certificate request using ARRAY TEXT will prompt the following error (assuming all data entered is correct):

- Your csr contains an invalid two letter country code.


Simply changing your array to ARRAY STRING will prevent the above error from displaying.
