Method of working out check digit for an SSCC shipping code in SQL on a system with Sage Line 500 and Datalinx WHM (Although its easy enough to change, the first “set @SSCC” basically gets the digits, the rest of the code simply calculates the check digit).

This proc uses the Datalinx WHM Pallet ID and Sage stock warehouse code as Sage Stock lot numbers may contain text and slashes.

If called from a Datalinx WHM telnet/SSH script all print lines must be commented out.

GS1 codes can be shorter or longer, remember only 16 digits can be used (The GS1 code goes in from the second digit and digit 18 is always a check code!)

After needing two different versions (One required spaces in between different blocks the other didn’t) I decided to be lazy and specify the field locations. This version expects no spaces, if you need spaces simply change the Substrings and increase the variable SSCC from varchar(18).

Another thing to mind is I don’t need to change the first digit (GS1 states the same SSCC code can not be used within a year).

-- =============================================
-- Description: Generate an SSCC code with check digit
-- The first digit is always zero (Unless we re-use lot numbers within a year)
-- Digits 2 to 7 are our GS1 number of 1234567
-- Digits 9 to 17 are out lot number (With +0 taken off the front)
-- Digit 18 is a check digit. Use GS1 Check Digit Rules to Calculate
-- =============================================
-- GS1 Check Digit Rules
-- 1 Starting with the right hand digit of the number, add all the alternate digit values
-- 2 Multiply the result of step 1 by 3
-- 3 Add up all the other remaining digits
-- 4 Add the result of step 2 to the result of step 3
-- 5 The check digit is the smallest number that must be added to this sum to reach a multiple of 10
-- Check output with http://www.gs1.org/check-digit-calculator to ensure accurate
