Create Lookup of Last Record

How can I create a lookup that brings in the last ID. I do not want it to be based on the user, I want it to be the last record ID in the sharepoint list.

Consider the following:

First(
   Sort(yourList, ID, Descending)
).ID

 

That will give you the last ID.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Thank you, the only problem is a delegation warning. How can I get around this as I will have more than 2,000 records. @RandyHayes

This should not be an issue...the First function is not delegable, but the Sort is.  So, the inner part of the sort should sort and then even if there are only 2000 records returned from that, it is not important because you only care about the first one.
