Bunny! Importing with same Thread and Post IDs

Hi Everyone,

I'm rebuilding my vB-based web site, and the previous vB database that we used added a lot of extraneous information to the 1.6+ million posts we've generated over the past few years. I'd like to build a new site from the ground up, and then, simply import all of the users and files from the old vB.

Is there a way that I can do this while retaining the same Thread and Post ID numbers used on the old site? I'd want the same IDs for searching/linking/indexing purposes.

It's probably possible, using ImpEx's "importid" field.
