Hello all,

As I often load my .dbf files in database tables, I need a column with unique values in my shapefile. As it happens, often I do not have such a column so I want to create it.

Is there a way to create this column in GM? I would like to have only unique values in my new created column, let's say from 1 to N, N = the total number of features in my shapefile.

I have such a count in the <Index in Layer> column but it cannot be actually exported / used.

Thank you,

    I later found the Setup Attribute Calculation Option. It can be found if you right click the layer in the OCC under CALC ATTR.

    Sorry but I still think a delete button would be useful. :D
