Creating a unique number / ID in Omnis Studio

Hi List,

I was wondering if anyone had any good tips when it comes to creating unique numbers or IDs in Omnis?
For instance, to identify a specific row in a List variable whose number of lines is constantly changing (with $addbefore, $addafter, and $remove).

I have been using #CT (number of ticks) but technology has caught up, and now there are situations with duplicate values because the calculations are done in the same 1/60th of a second.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Nick Renders
