Renumber / Change Activity ID for all activities to be ascending perfectly in Primavera P6

While making activity list for a project, we usually have to insert Activity. So the final Activity list don’t have a nice ascending sequence like below picture:

We want all activities ID to be ascending nicely.

So we select all activities, go to menu Edit -> Renumber Activity ID. Edit the Prefix if necessary, and click OK

But the activity ID is not perfectly ascending.

What’s wrong?

I will show you how to make it perfectly ascending.

Before we run Renumber Activity ID, we go to menu View -> Group and Sort, Click on Sort button, Click Delete button to delete the Sort criteria.
