I need to create a unique number for all companies in my database and it would be great if ACT automaticly created a unique number for each new company added.
ACT! does actually create unique IDs for every record.
Because it has to work accross companies added via sync and other remote tools, it needs to add rather long IDs to ensure that they are unique ... this means that they are not all that usable to most people are are hidden except from programs accessing the data via the SDK, OLEDB or ODBC.
There are several addons that will do this is different ways according to the specific business need that you might have.

Great suggestion! For now, here are a couple of add-ons you may want to look at:
Thank you for the links! as ACT doesn't have this capability I think we are going to go with one of these.
