Public Function UPCA2UPCE(ByVal UPCA As String) As String

    Dim ValidDigits As String
    Dim Mfg As String
    Dim Prod As String
    Dim x As Integer
   
    If Len(UPCA) <> 12 Or (Left(UPCA, 1) <> "0" And Left(UPCA, 1) <> "1") Or _
       InStr(1, Mid(UPCA, 5, 8), "0000") < 1 Then
        UPCA2UPCE = "INVALID"
    Else
        Mfg = Mid(UPCA, 2, 5)
        Prod = Mid(UPCA, 7, 5)
        If Right(Mfg, 3) = "000" Or Right(Mfg, 3) = "100" Or Right(Mfg, 3) = "200" Then
            ValidDigits = Left(Mfg, 2) & Right(Prod, 3) & Mid(Mfg, 3, 1)
        ElseIf Right(Mfg, 2) = "00" Then
            ValidDigits = Left(Mfg, 3) & Right(Prod, 2) & "3"
        ElseIf Right(Mfg, 1) = "0" Then
            ValidDigits = Left(Mfg, 4) & Right(Prod, 1) & "4"
        Else
            ValidDigits = Left(Mfg, 5) & Right(Prod, 1)
        End If
        UPCA2UPCE = Left(UPCA, 1) & ValidDigits & Right(UPCA, 1)
    End If
End Function

this function converts a string to a different string, I want to do it from sql,

What will be the correct syntex?

hi

check the code below.

if you send me a sample of the string you send to this function and the desired output, i can get it tweaked to exactly get it right.


Declare @ValidDigits varchar(200)

Declare @Mfg  varchar(200)

Declare @Prod  varchar(200)

Declare @x int



Declare @UPCA varchar(200)

declare @UPCA2UPCE varchar(200) 

 

if LEN(@UPCA) <> 12 or RIGHT(@Mfg,3) = '100' or RIGHT(@Mfg,3) = '200' 

or CHARINDEX('0000',substring(@UPCA, 5, 8)) < 1

	set @UPCA2UPCE = 'INVALID'

else

begin

    SET @Mfg = substring(@UPCA, 2, 5)

    SET @Prod = substring(@UPCA, 7, 5)

     If Right(@Mfg, 3) = '000' Or Right(@Mfg, 3) = '100' Or Right(@Mfg, 3) = '200' 

		set @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 2) + Right(@Prod, 3) + Substring(@Mfg, 3, 1)

     else if Right(@Mfg, 2) = '00'

		set @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 3) + Right(@Prod, 2) + '3'

	 else if Right(@Mfg, 1) = '0'

	    set @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 4) + Right(@Prod, 1) & '4'

	 else

		set  @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 5) + Right(@Prod, 1)   

	 SET @UPCA2UPCE = Left(@UPCA, 1) + @ValidDigits + Right(@UPCA, 1)	

end

i missed and & in the above script

this code below is correct syntax, i need to test it with your string
Declare @ValidDigits varchar(200)

Declare @Mfg  varchar(200)

Declare @Prod  varchar(200)

Declare @x int



Declare @UPCA varchar(200)

declare @UPCA2UPCE varchar(200) 

 

if LEN(@UPCA) <> 12 or RIGHT(@Mfg,3) = '100' or RIGHT(@Mfg,3) = '200' 

or CHARINDEX('0000',substring(@UPCA, 5, 8)) < 1

	set @UPCA2UPCE = 'INVALID'

else

begin

    SET @Mfg = substring(@UPCA, 2, 5)

    SET @Prod = substring(@UPCA, 7, 5)

     If Right(@Mfg, 3) = '000' Or Right(@Mfg, 3) = '100' Or Right(@Mfg, 3) = '200' 

		set @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 2) + Right(@Prod, 3) + Substring(@Mfg, 3, 1)

     else if Right(@Mfg, 2) = '00'

		set @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 3) + Right(@Prod, 2) + '3'

	 else if Right(@Mfg, 1) = '0'

	    set @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 4) + Right(@Prod, 1) + '4'

	 else

		set  @ValidDigits = Left(@Mfg, 5) + Right(@Prod, 1)   

	 SET @UPCA2UPCE = Left(@UPCA, 1) + @ValidDigits + Right(@UPCA, 1)
