I have a SharePoint list "A" which each record has a unique number called "enq no"., when the list record is created it also creates folders in a document library. This document library record has subfolders. I need to create a link in these subfolders back to the list record.

Both the list and subfolders in the library has the unique number "enq no.", but I need the list ID to be able to create a url back to the list item.

How do I get the list ID so I can use it in a link?

Novice to all of this.
