What is a robust way to generate a UID to use as a barcode identifier in a report. I did have the barcode representing the information directly, but now there is too much info to encode as a barcode. Now I must associate the data with a UID in my database to get the info I need when I scan. Looking for suggestions on the best way to generate the UID.
EDIT: The UID will be entered into the database along with the associative data in a button script.
