Hello Mayur:

Yes, this is possible to change a particular FrameMaker paragraph style to
another in a document using the Find/Change option.

In the FrameMaker "Find" you select "Paragraph Tag" and type the name of the
format that you want to locate and then get rid of.

In the "Change" you select "By Pasting". Then, in order to be able to Paste
the replacement (change to) paragraph format, click in a paragraph that is
tagged with that format and do Edit > Copy Special > Paragraph Format.

(Be careful not to Copy Special a Paragraph Format that has an override--an
asterisk next to its name.)

Then do your finding, and click Change to ensure it is working properly.
Once it is working properly -- I usually check the first 2-3 instances --
you can do a Change All through a book or document.

Good luck,
