Correct, but that is a different point.  

What I mean by the main goal is from the field perspective.  If the field is empty (i.e. a new form), then it gets assigned the next id.

Are you dealing with editing records (not creating new) that will have NO id in them?

What type of column are you working with?

In general though, your formula should be: Coalesce(ThisItem.yourColumnName, Last(Forecast).UniqueID+1)

This assumes that your column is a numeric column.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

The if condition is most likely not needed.  Isn't your ultimate goal to provide a value if there is no value (i.e. a New Form)?  If so, then the only formula you need is: Coalesce(ThisItem.UniqueID, Last(Forecast).UniqueID+1)

no the ultimate goal is to increase the uniqueid column with +1 if its new request.
