How to modify Activity ID Suffix in Primavera P6


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.
