Can Alexa understand alpha numeric values such as X001, A1234 etc.? If yes then how to implement this?

I am trying to build a skill that will be able to load a CSV file stored in the S3 bucket and perform certain operations on the file. Everything else is in place except for one very import thing for my use case. The files can have columns with alphanumeric names such as X001, A1234 etc. and I can't figure out a way to make Alexa understand the alphanumeric string. Everytime it recognises the numeric part as the value with both Amazon.SearchQuery as well as my custom slot type.

Is there a way for me to make Alexa understand these type of values?

I found a similar forum question about alpha numeric here. Since it seems like you have a pattern [letter][number][number][number], this can be done in interaction model like this:

FileNameIntent {letter}{numberOne}{numberTwo}{numberThree}
My file name is {letter}{numberOne}{numberTwo}{numberThree}

Check out this table for a good reference on Custom Slot Type Values!
