just to clarify the question.  I want to convert the datafiles from 1 location to multiple locations on the standby since the space is limited on 1 location.

Any one there to answer this question?

You would need to list ALL the files separately like this:

The short answer to your question is NO.

You can convert multiple locations to multiple locations or multiple locations to single location.

To convert multiple locations to multiple locations, you need to pair the source and target locations in a list:
db_file_name_convert=(/oracle/oradata/orcl/,/dup/oracle/oradata/orcl/,/oracle/oradata/orcl2/,/dup/oracle/oradata/orcl2/... You get the idea.
Alternatively, you'll need to specify file by file like MikeOM_DBA suggests above.
