    is username.nk2 editable? (Outlook XP Dutch)

    Good afternoon!

    Just solved one problem, got the next!
    I want to know if it's possible to edit the username.nk2 file.
    Here's the situation: one of our employees has been working for a couple of weeks using another persons username. This other person is not coming back, and now is the replacement happy to use her own account again. Problem however is that the 'old' user has so many data in her *.nk2 file that the other one wants them too. BUT she doesn't want her own one to be replaced...
    Can I just open the *.nk2 file with wordpad and copy the whole thing to the other user's *.nk2 file?

    I hope to hear from you soon! (it's on behalf of the direction secretary <img src=/S/burnup.gif border=0 alt=burnup width=31 height=31>

    Many thanks in advance!

    Bye bye,
    Daphne

    Unfortunately, no - MS had an editor for the first nickname file format, but did not update it for XP+ NK2 files. You could try a binary joining of the files, but I'll be surprised if it works.

    Ingressor's homepage has tools to edit .nkw2 files. The tools are NOT <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> but not terribly expensive either.

    Thanks for your replies!
    I'll have a look into Ingressor (however I was not allowed to buy this for one user :-p)

    Have a nice weekend all!
