Many times we work with the logical file path and also physical file path. I like to make this post to have a over view on both the Path.
You should be aware of the Transaction code: FILE.
This is the T.code which help you to map both of them
Logical File Path:
1) This is not physical, it is only a representation of the physical path. Generally the physical path will have the folder representations so to make it simple it is being used.
Physical File Path:
1) This represent the details of the folders/file which can be seen on the application server.
This. FILE t.code helps to map you between them and also other functionalities.
Hope this helps to start with the T.code..
