Insert Page - Capturing the ID and inserting it in another field

1: During an insert, the Database ID is captured in a Session Variable.
2: This variable is great for manipulating the names of files and images for that record, but I have a different problem.

What I want to do is insert that value into another field, called "sort". But during the insert, that session value has not been created yet. (when I create yet another record it remembers the value from the previous insert, not the new value)

How can I capture the ID of the record being inserted, then pass it into the "sort" column of my database?

Or - is there a better solution for capturing/inserting a "sort" value? The reason I want the "record ID" is because I know that will be unique - which is has to be.

you cant know the record ID till the record is inserted.

you would need to add an update behavior to update the record with the session variable. use the session to tell it which record to update and as the value for the sort column.
