Changing/updating the names of old computers and/or usernames

Started by Luis

Hi,
Is there a way to update/change the names of old computers and/or users? I want to retain the usage data, but merge it into new computer/usernames.

I've tried to update the USAGE and PEER_USAGE DB tables using "SQLite Spy", but the schema indexing prevents the SQL statement from executing.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Luis

That probably means it would create duplicates, i.e. you already have some records for the hour and day with the new computer/user name.

You can perhaps run UPDATE OR IGNORE or UPDATE OR REPLACE statement to disregard those duplicates.
Thanks Andrew - it worked perfectly.
