MSI Barcode Check Digit Calculation

To help users integrate barcodes into various applications, IDAutomation provides free font tools to automatically format the start, stop and check characters to the barcode font. Free tools are provided for various environments such as MS Office Macros for Word, Excel and Access, Visual Basic, ANSI C and Java Source Code, ActiveX DLLs, Crystal Reports User Function Libraries (UFLs) and a check digit calculation application with Visual Basic source code.

Here is how to manually calculate a check digit for the MSI Plessey Barcode Font:

  1. In this example, the number to be encoded is 173946. Starting from the right side of the number (the units position), collect all of the odd position digits (i.e. digit 1, digit 3, digit 5, etc.) and create a new number leaving the digits in their left to right order. The new number would be 796. 
  2. Multiply the new number by 2. (796 x 2 = 1592)
  3. Add the digits of the product created in Step 2. (1 + 5 + 9 + 2 = 17)
  4. Starting from the right side of the number (the units position), collect all of the even position digits (i.e. digit 2, digit 4, digit 6, etc.) and create a new number leaving the digits in their left to right order. The new number would be 134. 
  5. Add the digits of the number created in Step 4. (1 + 3 + 4 = 8)
  6. Add the sums obtained in step 3 and 5. (17 + 8 = 25)
  7. Determine the smallest number, when added to the result of Step 6 (25) that will produce a multiple of 10. This value is the remainder obtained when dividing the result of Step 6 (25) by 10. Twenty five (25) divided by 10 = 2 with a remainder of 5. The check digit is 5.
  8. (1739465) will need to be typed or printed with the MSI barcode font applied.
