A record ID is a unique value used to access and update data. Record IDs can appear as: id, record_id, or recordId, depending on the tool. The record ID is used in APIs and some Formula Expressions.

Typically, the record ID is stored in a record's id field. Those fields generally are not displayed in common Views or Reports.

CONCAT (id, '')
    where: 
          id is a Record Identifier
          '' is two single quote (') characters
