You can find third party software.
e.g. Bells & Whistles -

You could try some VBA. This is the tricky part that generates the unique number.
Public Function GetNextID() As Long
  Dim lCurrID As Long
  Dim File As String

  File = "C:\Sample.txt"
  lCurrID = Val(ReadFile(File))
  lCurrID = lCurrID + 1
  WriteFile File, CStr(lCurrID), False
  GetNextID = lCurrID
End Function
