{UniqueId(12,NUMERIC)}– This will generate a unique ID, length 12, using numbers only, e.g., 412373164167

{UniqueId(12,ALPHA)}– This will generate a unique ID, length 12, using letters only, e.g., GTWAWNZYWSIC

{UniqueId(36,UUID)}– This will generate a universally unique ID, length 36, e.g., 8398e3c6-94ef-4e90-a809-03191424fda0
