Auto Populating a Unique ID Field

Question asked by joker321 on Oct 20, 2015

I'm currently working off a versioned SDE database and I'm trying to symbolize a unique id for point and line features.  Usually I just symbolize off the OID but this number cannot change.  Sometimes the point or line may get deleted and recreated.  I have no issue with pulling the unique Id out and reentering it but as most of you know this is not possible to do with an OID. 

 

So, is it possible to have a unique id field that automatically inputs a value one higher than the previous version?  If that is not possible is there a way to automatically copy the OID into another field so it's editable?

 

Thanks!
