Hi, I hope someone can give me a function to check wether a Belgian bank account number is right or not. I'm living in Belgium. An account number is like this: 111-1111111-11

I hope to get an answer very soon.

Thanks a lot

What do you want to confirm, that it is syntactically corect, that it actually exists as confirmed by the bank or that a particular transaction will succeed?

We need more information.

I was not clearly enough. Sorry for that. I'm looking for a function that confirms the number actually exists. I found one in VB
but I don't know how to convert it into Delphi syntax.

Private Function ControleBankNummer(BankNummer As String) As Boolean

Dim Nummer As Double
Dim Rest As Integer
Nummer = Val(Left(BankNummer, 10))
Rest = CInt(Nummer - (97 * Fix(Nummer / 97)))
ControleBankNummer = IIf(Rest = Val(Right(BankNummer, 2)), True, False)

End Function

Thanks

It is 02.00 AM and Eureka, I found it . I was using Longint instead of Int64. My code now looks like this and it works:

procedure TAdministratie.MaskEdit2Exit(Sender: TObject);
var Nummer: Int64;
    Rest: Int64;
begin
 Nummer:= StrToInt64(Leftstr(MaskEdit2.Text, 10));
 Rest:= (Nummer)MOD 97;
 if Rest = StrToInt64(RightStr(MaskEdit2.Text, 2)) then
  begin
  end
 else
  ShowMessage('Verkeerd rekeningnummer. Corrigeer.');
end;

Thanks

Good. Sometimes all that is needed is to talk with someone about it. ;-)
