Hey guys,


I am creating a map of several internet boxes in a city and I was hoping to give all of them a unique value so in the future technicians could refer to the boxes via a name or set of numbers.  There are also three different types of boxes that would need to be displayed.  There are about 4500 boxes in all.  Does anyone know of a way to create a unique identifier that can assign based on location?  For instance, all boxes within a given area would be given a name starting with A and another area would be given a name starting with B.  I understand you can run some selection related tools but I'm not sure how to give them names.


Thanks in advance!
