Syntax: Get ( RecordID )
Data type returned: Number
Description: Returns the unique, internal ID number of the current record. This number is generated automatically by FileMaker Pro and does not change.
The record ID is assigned sequentially within each table, beginning at 1. Record IDs are not reused; if a record is deleted, its ID is not reassigned.
When files are converted from previous versions, record IDs from the original file are preserved.
The record ID is required for editing and deleting records via Custom Web Publishing, as this is how the record to be changed or deleted must be identified.
Returns 275 when the FileMaker record ID is 275.
