I am a Sharepoint site admin without any development tools, I'm solely battling on with the Sharepoint web front end. What I would like to do is to create list items and generate a unique reference for each which can be shown when the line is edited or when sent as an RSS feed item. Presently I have a calculated field which consists of 3 concatanated fields, [dept] + [ID] + [change type].
The problem I have is that ID disappears when the item is edited or displayed as an RSS item ? I can only think that this is not a stored value but one calculated as the record is displayed ?
