    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    For i = 2 To lastRow
 
    
        If Cells(i, 2).value = "HRI " Then
            Cells(i, 15).value = "HRI"

By "HRI*"  do you mean an actual asterisk character or a wildcard character (zero or more of any character)?
If physical character, then
Sub InputHRI_WLA()
    Dim i As Long
    Dim lastRow As Long

    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    For i = 2 To lastRow
        If (Cells(i, 2).value = "HRI ") OR (Cells(i, 2).value = "HRI*") Then
            Cells(i, 15).value = "HRI"
        End If
    Next i
 End Sub

Hi,

Replace your If with this:
        If Cells(i, 2).Value Like "HRI*" Then
            Cells(i, 15).Value = "HRI"

Hi,

Do you want to replace HRI* with HRI

Sub InputHRI_WLA()
    Dim i As Long
    Dim lastRow As Long

    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    For i = 2 To lastRow
 
    
        If Cells(i, 2).value = "HRI " Or Cells(i, 2).value = "HRI*"  Then
            Cells(i, 15).value = "HRI"
        End If
    Next i
 End Sub

Or do you want to replace everything beginning with HRI with HRI


Sub InputHRI_WLA()
    Dim i As Long
    Dim lastRow As Long

    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    For i = 2 To lastRow
 
    
        If Cells(i, 2).value Like "HRI*" Then
            Cells(i, 15).value = "HRI"
        End If
    Next i
 End Sub
