Change the path for attachments after changing a server


Hello experts,

I have a requirement which I cannot solve...

By a customer a server which was used for saving the attachments is no longer active. The customer has now a file server. So in SAP we have changed the path information under Administration > System Initialisation > General Setting in the Path tab from the old server to the file server like this:

Old path:

New Server:

But now I have the problem that all the path information in the UDFs from type LINK and also in all attachment fields like in activities, where the customer has put in a file are still standing on the old status.

We have allready copied all attachzments from the old server to the new one in the same structure as in the old server).

Now I have to change in all fields, which are from type LINK (this concerns by the customer only item master date, BP master data and activities) the path information.

That means I have to paste the string in all the fields 'oldServer' whith 'newServer'.

Has anybody an idea how I could do this???

Best regards,
