hey all,
i am working on an assignment for class in which we enter a upc into a text box and it must be in the format mmmppp-c where c is the check digit. I need to validate the check digit by using this algorithm.

Calculate the sum of the odd-spaced digits (the 1st, 3rd, and 5th) Save that as Answer 1. Multiply Answer 1 by 3. Calculate the sum of the even-spaced digits (the 2nd, 4th, and 6th) and add this to answer1. The check digit should be whatever number you have to add to your last answer to get it up to the next multiple of ten.

example valid upc's are 111222-3, 333444-9

so anyone who knows how to do this please help me! =)

Private Sub Text1_Lostfocus()
Dim stString As String
Dim stTemp As String

stString = Text1.Text

stTemp = Int(Mid(stString, 1, 1)) + Int(Mid(stString, 3, 1)) _
    + Int(Mid(stString, 5, 1))
stTemp = stTemp * 3
stTemp = stTemp + Int(Mid(stString, 2, 1)) + Int(Mid(stString, 4, 1)) _
    + Int(Mid(stString, 6, 1))

If 10 - Int(Right(stTemp, 1)) = Int(Right(stString, 1)) Then
    Call MsgBox("It is good", vbInformation)

Dim txtVal as string
Dim SumOdds as long
Dim SubEvens as long
DIm CheckSum as long

txtVal = Text1.text
SumOdds = Val(Mid(txtVal, 1, 1)) + Val(Mid(txtVal, 3, 1)) + Val(Mid(txtVal, 4, 1))
SumEvens = Val(Mid(txtVal, 2, 1)) + Val(Mid(txtVal, 4, 1)) + Val(Mid(txtVal, 6, 1))
CheckSum = SumOdds * 3 + SumEvens
CheckSum = 10 - (CheckSum MOD 10)

If (Val(Right(Trim(txtVal), 1) <> CheckSum) then
     MsgBox "CheckSum Failed"
End If

Good Luck!

for a 0 answer for c, add some code like this

If int(right(stTemp, 1)) = 0 and int(Right(stString,1)) = 0 then

Call msgbox("it is good",vbinformation)

end if

add this code in this part.

If 10 - Int(Right(stTemp, 1)) = Int(Right(stString, 1)) Then
   Call MsgBox("It is good", vbInformation)
Else
   If int(right(stTemp, 1)) = 0 and int(Right(stString,1)) = 0 then
      Call msgbox("it is good",vbinformation)
   else  
   Call MsgBox("not good", vbInformation)
   Call Text1.SetFocus
   end if
End If

I hope this is helpful

Final Code looks like

Private Sub Text1_Lostfocus()
Dim stString As String
Dim stTemp As String

stString = Text1.Text

stTemp = Int(Mid(stString, 1, 1)) + Int(Mid(stString, 3, 1)) _
   + Int(Mid(stString, 5, 1))
stTemp = stTemp * 3
stTemp = stTemp + Int(Mid(stString, 2, 1)) + Int(Mid(stString, 4, 1)) _
   + Int(Mid(stString, 6, 1))

If 10 - Int(Right(stTemp, 1)) = Int(Right(stString, 1)) Then
  Call MsgBox("It is good", vbInformation)
Else
  If int(right(stTemp, 1)) = 0 and int(Right(stString,1)) = 0 then
     Call msgbox("it is good",vbinformation)
  else  
  Call MsgBox("not good", vbInformation)
  Call Text1.SetFocus
  end if
End If

End Sub
