I am trying to get a data field named "Site_NGUID" to automatically populate data.

The data to populate needs to have special text in front of and at the end of another field.

The example would be: 'SSAP' + (Object ID Field) + '@BC4011' = "Site_NGUID"

So the populated text should look like this: SSAP258@BC4011

 

When I try the field calculator query below, I get an error.  Also, is there a way to automate this field population for any new address points that are added?

Close (need double quotes instead of single, and cast the numeric OID to string).  This is working for me:

 

"SSAP" + str( !OBJECTID! ) + "@BC4011"

To 'automagically' populate the fields, look into Attribute Assistant Expression function.
