Can the State be abbreviated when creating CSR

I have a user having an issue with a certificate that was creating using a CSR that had the state abbreviated in it.

Can the state be abbreviated?  This cert is for an Windows IIS server

No it must be the full state name

As far as I know, there is no official requirement that the state field be the full state name, or be in any particular format.

Some registrars have been known to be fussy (European ones usually don't care, some American ones do) but usually, anything that would work on a postal address will be acceptable in a subject identifier.
