unique id-code generator


Hi, I am searching a very helpful function for any field biologist... I would like to generate color ring code. I have 7 possible colors and I will put three rings. I am also differentiating females from males with the ringing. Example: M/B/B/B (A male with three black rings) F/B/W/G (A female with a black ring, a white ring and a grey ring) I would like that the function give me a unique code each time I make a new record. Obviously the code should be unique! The color can be given randomly but the first letter should be depend on the sex I am defining. Any idea of a script? Thank you! Nicolas
