It shouldn't be different.  There are some situations where it can be different, though :
the field is a computed-when-composed or editable field, and it shows the situation when the document was created.  Now if the document is copied (eg. copy-pasted), the value in the field doesn't change, but the document unique id does change (it's a new document)

cheers,

Tom

Another situation where they appear different:
In a web application new documents get a temporary doc id assigned at first. When the document is submitted, it's final doc id is assigned and shown in the view.
Reopening the document will continue to show the new id.

New documents in the notes client will show no doc id untill they are saved.

I think CRAK has cracked this one.

I just noticed that the different IDs only happen on web-submitted documents. Any documents created from within the client have the same ids.
