IBAN validator as a dITo project
Author: firstname.lastname@example.org (ulrich-merkel)
in europe, we will have IBAN numbers for "international" money transactions as a must shortly.
So databases have to be enhanced to hold this up to 31 characters (for Malta) long string.
As the documentation says; only banks are entitled to generate IBAN numbers,
because they may have special ideas how to compose this number:
Padding accounts or using sub-account numbers is one of the points they may want to have their own ideas.
Unfortunately, this will stop us to generate the IBAN from the data already held in our databases and we may have to face manual data entry
And because this Monster holds in Position3 and 4 a check-sum, one needs a validation routine to check data input perhaps written in uniface ??
Is there any interest to join efforts to provide a general IBAN validator routine here on uniface.info ??
I think, it should be some dITo type of task (not "professional" because it will be free of charge), so : ANY VOLUNTEERS to join the band?
