How to get lastest incremented UNIQUEIDENTIFIER?

Hello Everyone!
       As last inserted value can be got through "Select @@Identifier" if we are using INTEGER datatype but what if we use UNIQUEIDENTIFIER datatype, how do we get last inserted value?

                                                                       Thanx,

                                                                       Adnan

There isn't a way to get the value of a uniqueidentifier column after an insert. You can get it before the insert, however, by using the below code.

DECLARE @GUID uniqueidentifier
SET @GUID = NEWID()
INSERT Item VALUES (@GUID,'Yak Hoof')

And additonally, you shouldn't really use @@IDENTITY in the first place, as if you have a trigger on the table which then inserts to another table you will receive the wrong value.  For identity columns, you should use scope_identity() instead.
