    Hi Sri,

    regarding some very similar issue I got an individual modification report with the following coding which could maybe be useful for your situation too:

    tables: dms_phio2file.
    parameters: old_path LIKE dms_phio2file-filename,
                new_path LIKE dms_phio2file-filename.
    data: lt_dms_phio2file TYPE TABLE OF dms_phio2file,
          wa_dms_phio2file TYPE dms_phio2file,
          lt_dms_phio2file_1 TYPE TABLE OF dms_phio2file,
          wa_dms_phio2file_1 TYPE dms_phio2file,
          updated_path LIKE dms_phio2file-filename.
    select * from dms_phio2file into corresponding fields of table lt_dms_phio2file.
    LOOP AT lt_dms_phio2file INTO wa_dms_phio2file.
      IF wa_dms_phio2file-filename CS old_path.
        CLEAR updated_path.
        updated_path = wa_dms_phio2file-filename.
        REPLACE ALL OCCURRENCES OF old_path IN updated_path WITH new_path.
        wa_dms_phio2file-filename = updated_path.
        MODIFY lt_dms_phio2file INDEX sy-tabix FROM wa_dms_phio2file TRANSPORTING file_id filename.
    UPDATE dms_phio2file FROM TABLE lt_dms_phio2file.
    IF sy-subrc = 0.
      WRITE 'Update in database successful'.
      WRITE 'Update in database not fully successful'.

    Please note that this report is just a sample and not an official SAP report. So please check if this could help to modify the file paths in your system too.

    Best regards,
