Salesforce internal id order?

Hi,

When a new record is inserted in an object, is the generated ID of the the new record guarenteed to be greater than a older record? 

Thanks!

Hi sornakumar,

yes ,the recent record created Id always have greater than a older record.

For Example -- I created the 5 dummy record in the org and you can see that the last letter increase.
