GUID = Globally Unique IDentifier.

One way to "get" a guid is from SQL as a "NewId"

.net has a createguid function i believe but ive never really had any reason to use it.. It usually adds GUIDs itself where it needs them (i.e .net Components that are exposed via COM)...

The function that lojk referred to is:

Dim Guid As String = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString()
