Many thanks.

    Hello Steve,

    You can use function module

    GUID_CREATE

    It allows you to generate GUID16, GUID22 or GUID32.

    Regards,

    Hello Steve

    If you have software component <b>EA-APPL</b> available on your SAP system there is also class <b>CL_RECA_GUID</b> available.
