Well, the routine can be made even simpler! This version is 5 instructions shorter and 48 cycles faster. Thanks to Zlatko Petkov for an idea of removing the extra shifts after the loop.

Thanks so much, this is a much simple routine,+
but it did not work with me until I changed
the first line to :movlw .24 ,I am using MPASM and MPLAB, it recogonize
the decimal numbers precedded with a dot .

Dear Piclist People:
Thanks to all for sharing your knowledge. I was wondering if some of you have had a problem like the one I describe below. Any help will be welcomed!
Iâ¬™m dealing with integer unsigned binary division using a PIC. I implemented 24/24 bit division and everything went ok. But when performing 24/16 bit division, something goes wrong.
The dividend (numerator) is a 24 bit constant, but the divisor (denominator) is a variable number. When this denominator takes a low value (but still 16 bit value), say 10700 i.e., the error in the result is quite a lot, and it becomes bigger as the difference between both operands does too. Is there a solution to this?
Thanks again for your help. Greetings!
Comments:
reference the LAST code segment.
Using a PIC18F4520, please note the code changes.

Sorry, I forgot...+
Also, for PIC184520...
replace SKPNC with btfsc CARRY; SKPNC ;if no borrow after 16 bit subtraction btfsc CARRY ; if no borrow after 16 bit subtraction
