Function: Mod10 check digit with weights of 7,5,3,2

Need help writing code snippet for Modulus 10 check digit with weights of 7,5,3,2. As shown below:

Thank you!

  'Get Number of
  NumberOfDigits = Len(CStr(VarScanlineData))
  ' Not sure here if it is always 7 digits. It is a lot simpler if this is the case
  ' But I will assume the weight pattern just repeats itself so the scanline data can be any length
  For I = 1 To NumberOfDigits
    Digit = CInt(Mid(CStr(VarScanlineData), I, 1))
    J = J + 1
    WeightedDigit = Digit * Weights(J)
    Debug.Print "Digit:" & Digit & " Weighted Digit: " & WeightedDigit
    If J = Weights.Count Then J = 0
    'Add the weighted digits to a collection
    WeightedDigits.Add (WeightedDigit)
  Next I
  For I = 1 To WeightedDigits.Count
    WeightedDigit = WeightedDigits(I)
    strDigit = CStr(WeightedDigit)
    For J = 1 To Len(strDigit)
      WeightedSum = WeightedSum + CInt(Mid(strDigit, J, 1))
    Next J
    Debug.Print "Weighted Sum " & WeightedSum
    GrandSum = GrandSum + WeightedSum
    WeightedSum = 0
  Next I
    Debug.Print "GrandSum " & GrandSum
    'Mod 10 of Grand Sum
    GrandSumMod10 = GrandSum Mod 10
    Debug.Print GrandSum & " Mod 10: " & GrandSumMod10
    'Get Check digit
    If GrandSumMod10 = 0 Then
      GetCheckdigit = 0
      GetCheckdigit = 10 - GrandSumMod10
    End If
