Assigning unique (unchanging) id numbers to records
What is the procedure to assign unique (unchanging) id numbers to individual records? Does the FileMaker program assign such numbers automatically upon creation of a record? If so, can these numbers be accessed and used as reference numbers? Or do unique record numbers need to be entered manually like any other data? I am using FM Pro 6.0v4 on a MacBook Pro with OS 10.5.8 and even though I have used FM for years, my level of expertise is fairly basic.
