I'm very new to the world of GIS, so forgive me if this is easier than I'm making it out to be.  I would like to generate an ID attribute from road segment data.  The attributes for each road segment include the road name, so I will like to generate an ID with a prefix based on the name.  For example, if Main Street has 10 segments I would like the new IDs to read 01-001, 01-002, 01-003, etc. where the 01 prefix is based on the road name and the last 3 digits are the segment numbers.  If there are 50 different road names the prefixes would need to be 01 to 50.  Is this possible with my limited experience?
