Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Dear All,

I have completed the schedule and i have added so many additional activities who has differenet Activity number. 

Started with A1000 and Ends with A11506 etc.

Now i want to Renumber the Activity ID with same activities sequence displayed. I followed this Youtube method ( and it works on small project but not in my current project. I mean it renumbered the ID but sequence is wrong. Activities ID is spreading in all other categories.

You can use XLS IMPORT to populate a Text User Defined Field with the new ID's you want to use, then run a Global Change to replace the ID's with the values in the UDF. Just make sure all the UDF values are unique.
