Change record creator?

Is there a way to change the Record Creator in a database?  I'm merging multiple databases to a consolidated database and I want the system admin to show as the record creator for the fresh database.

Not without a lot of messing around... you can change the Record Manager, which is usually more important.

That's what I was afraid of.....can you be a little more specific about the possible alternatives to do this?

Why do you need the Creator to change? Isn't the Manager enough?
 
If it's important, the fastest way would be to export the database and reinport it.
 
If you have Notes, Histories, etc... then you need to use a tool like itExport and itImport to get everything out and in again.
 
You can download a trial of both by downloading itImport from http://www.glcomputing.com.au/main/57/1
