Sorry Michael, I didn't mean it as a lecture. I realized from your email, that my request could (and indeed was) be misinterpreted, so to make my request clearer I gave more detail. Anyway sorry about that.

Each of the digits is then multiplied by either 1 or 2 depending upon its position, with the lowend position being multiplied by 2, then the next position to the left, being multiplied by 1, then the next position to the left, being multiplied by 2, then the next position to the left, being multiplied by 1, etc. For this example 1234567890 becomes 1 x 1 = 1 2 x 2 = 4 3 x 1 = 3 4 x 2 = 8 5 x 1 = 5 6 x 2 = 12 7 x 1 = 7 8 x 2 = 16 9 x 1 = 9 0 x 2 = 0 These answers are then accumulated, in this instance 1 + 4 + 3 + 8 + 5 + 12 + 7 + 16 + 9 + 0 = 65 The last digit of this answer (5 of 65) is then subtracted from 10, giving the answer 5 Therefore the check digit for the number 1234567890 is 5 This is how the check digit for a bank account number is calculated. I quickly wrote this down, and I'm pretty sure this is the correct way to do the Mod 10 check digit calculation. Again, if anyone can help, much appreciated Alan Shore NBTY, Inc (631) 2442000 ext. 5019 AShore@xxxxxxxx Michael_Schutte@b obevans.com Sent by: To rpg400lbounces@ RPG programming on the AS400 / midrange.com iSeries <rpg400l@xxxxxxxxxxxx> cc 04/12/2006 03:04 Subject PM Re: Mod 10 check digit calculation Please respond to RPG programming on the AS400 / iSeries <rpg400l@midrang e.com> You want a mod 10 calculation of a number right? 11 mod 10 = 1 %Rem(11:10) = 1 Am I missing something?
