the following code will do what you want.

How to set up and run:

(1) startingStringValue needs to hold the string that you want to search for that you DO NOT want to change in the cell.
(2) newCellValue needs to hold the NEW value that you want the cells changed to.
(3) select/highlight the range you want the vba code to consider... then run the macro.

 

Sub test()
    Dim StartStringValue As String
    Dim newCellValue As String
    
    StartStringValue = "t"
    newCellValue = "NewValue"
    
    Dim aCell As Range

    For Each aCell In Selection
        If Left(aCell.Value, Len(StartStringValue)) <> StartStringValue Then
            aCell = newCellValue
        End If
    Next
End Sub
