Create a unique Record ID number on an existing database

Post

Hi I'm new to Filemaker and have inherited a database with over 4,000 records.  My issue is that they don't have a Record_ID.  Is there an easy way to create a unique number for all of the existing ones instead of me having to go and type every single one? and for new I assume I can then go to Options and tell it to have serial number next value (being the next one in line)?

Thanks for the help in advance
