In Primavera we can use ‘Renumbering Activity ID” function to modify Activity ID Prefix. How about we want to modify Suffix.
I will show you how.
We have a simple project with default activity ID like this
First we go to Tool -> Global Change
Click on New button
In “Then” section:
- In Parameter select “Activity ID”
- In Parameter/Value select “Activity ID”
- In Operator select “&”
- In Parameter/Value select “Custom”
Then enter the Suffix you want to add. For example “FDN”
Click on “Change” button.
P6 will show you a preview of the change. Click on “Commit Changes” button.
Now you can see there is “FDN” letter in your Activity ID.
I use ‘user_text’ field as a variable then export Activities to Excel spreadsheet. Then build new activity ID’s in ‘user_text’ and import back into P6. Now global change saying: activity ID = user_text
For an Excel fan user, that would be a good way.
