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.

In addition to Pinan response below is another Global Change parameter that you can use.
where WBS is under (select the wbs containing activity to change)
Activity ID = SUTSFF & RightString(Activity Id,3)

In this case it will limit only on WBS stated and not all activity with SUTSGF.

The simplest is Replace Function (Control R), Find GF and Replace with FF

By Global Change, You can try a simple one

Activity Id starts with SUTSGF

Activity Id EQ SUTSFF & rightstring(activity id,3)
