If you are using earlier versions of Primavera P6, such as P5.x or P6.0, then you may not have the “Renumber Activity IDs” feature. How can you renumber your Activity IDs then?
If you need to edit your Activity IDs, you can do so with the help of P6’s Global Change functionality.
A Global Change is sort of like running an Excel macro, but not quite as powerful. However, you can make some large-scale changes to project data using Global Changes and renumbering IDs is a perfect fit for this feature.
NOTE: A Global Change can edit your existing IDs by changing a prefix or suffix, but actually renumbering (say from 0,1,2,3 to 0000, 0010, 0020, 0030 etc. is not possible with a Global Change. To do that, you’ll need to use the Renumber Activity IDs feature or you’ll need to renumber and recode using Excel.
