You can use a formula. Assuming the UPC code is in A1:

   =9-MOD(SUMPRODUCT(VALUE(MID(A1,ROW(OFFSET($A$1,0,0,LEN(A1))),1))*(MOD(ROW(OFFSET($A$1,17-LEN(A1),0,LEN(A1))),2)*2+1))-1,10)

Thanks for the quick response! I have a question on how to handle if it's not in A1.

If it's not in A1, do I simply change all A1 to be the cell it's in? Does this include $A$1 or no?

No. Do not change the $A$1 references. That is used as a trick to make the SUMPRODUCT function work. The same formula assuming the value is in A2:

   =9-MOD(SUMPRODUCT(VALUE(MID(A2,ROW(OFFSET($A$1,0,0,LEN(A2))),1))*(MOD(ROW(OFFSET($A$1,17-LEN(A2),0,LEN(A2))),2)*2+1))-1,10)
