Keeping some data in column separate from processed data

I have an ID number associated with each row of text that is being processed. The ID number is in a separate column from the body of text. I need to reference this ID in another program through word search so I don't want it to change. Everytime I run my process and run it through write excel, I lose my unique ID number and it changed to the number row it is in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You need to use Generate ID operator to create a permanent ID for your file.  The other one you are seeing is just the row number that RapidMiner assigns internally and it is not persistent.
