Will return a GUID.

A GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) is almost guaranteed to be unique, even without a central authority to ensure uniqueness. They are used to identify different things across different systems with a minute chance of collision. This is not only related to databases, they can be used for creating unique file names.

Syntax
