Why Google AdWords recognises 30 out of 45 Postal codes I entered

I tried adding 45 postal codes for my targeting, and Google AdWords recognized only 30 out of 45. Any idea why that happened? I am getting this message: 15 locations weren't recognized and are listed above. You can update and click Search to re-submit these locations.

 

Thanks,
David

Hey Davis,

 

There might be different issues. Such as 4 character postal codes, invalid postal codes etc. I am not sure though about the exact error you are getting, but you might get lead through this article for targeting methodology.
