Can someone post a pic of how they hooked up this keypad or explain how to hook it to an arduino?

it tells you which pins are the rows and which are the coloumns

SubMicro

Actually it's confusing as h$ll !

I went and bought a new DVM because of the readings I was getting, but it turns out I get the same readings with the new one!
According to SparkFun it doesn't have the typical Row Col setup.
Which pins require the pull up's ? which pins are col & rows?
The tutorial isn't meant for a 7 pin setup.

Confused as usual

I easily found the pinout with a pen, sheet of paper, and a multimeter/testlight took maybe 10 min.
