The Record ID tool creates a new column in the data and assigns a unique identifier, that increases sequentially, for each record in the data. The Record ID tool generates unique identifiers with numeric values or string values, based on the data type you select.
Use the Record ID tool to assign a sequence to the data. Sort the data in other columns and then return the data to its original order by sorting the values in the new Record ID column.
Alteryx adds leading zeros to the record (if necessary) to equal the string size you select.
