    GUIDs are system generated unique keys which identifies CRM objects (campaigns, sales documents, business partners, products etc.). CRM & MSA works on GUIDs. Most of the table relationships are defined on GUIDs.

    Here is some additional information about GUID.

    GUIDs (Globally Unique Identifiers) serve as primary keys for all tables in the CRM. A GUID is generated by a special algorithm using as input data certain hardware information of the host computer, the current system time, and a randomly generated number. The GUID can be represented in two formats: a 32-byte character field or a 16-byte raw sequence. It is globally unique in the sense that two GUIDs produced on any two computers (or even on the same one) at any time can never be the same.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    Guid – Globally Unique Identifier

    Used as primary keys in CRM tables.

    All transactions are uniquely identified by their guids internally

    Transaction numbers are not unique

    System calls a function module GUID_CREATE to create a unique GUID everytime you create a transaction.

    Whenever you are creating some transaction programatically you will have to first create a unique GUID for the transaction by calling GUID_CREATE.
