This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
In RMS is there any way to retrieve particular Record's record ID in a RecordStore.
for example:: I have created a RecordStore which will hold Names.After entering names into RecordStore if i want to modify a particular record i need RecordId allocated for that perticular Record...As we know that it is unpedictable to guess RecordID because it may not take 0,1,2,.....so on consecutive numbers as RecordID
Giving up is the easiest thing in the world to do..but holding it together when everything seems like falling apart is true strength!!

I suppose it really depends on how you're doing it.
You could always get a RecordEnumerator with an appropriate RecordFilter and RecordComparator to look through the RMS to find the one you're looking for. Or, if it won't be too ungainly, you can do what I did with one app, and keep a lookup table of the record IDs in your application (I did this due to the possibility of frequent updates of information, to spare myself having to write searches as I was doing it quick-and-dirty).
But no, you're correct that you can't assume that it's consecutive.
