Re: How to remove Chat history for a single contact

Can I still apply this same task on a Mac? If so anything different that needs to be done? Thanks/

Re: How to remove Chat history for a single contact

If someone wants to update or remove a single line from the conversation use this.

This will change only your history, not the other side history!

Use SQLite DB Browser.
Download it from http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/

 

Quit Skype!

 

Go to C:\Users\'windows_username'\AppData\Roaming\Skype\'skype_username' and make backup of the main.db


With SQLite open the main.db file from C:\Users\'windows_username'\AppData\Roaming\Skype\'skype_username'

 

Find id of the record in table Messages:

Go to Browse data tab -> select table Messages -> click on find icon ->
select author -> contains -> skype profile name of user you are searching for ->
click on one of the last results in the list and you will see the row ->
on body_xml column you can find the message -> find column id number

You can use other columns for searching too. For example: body_xml - for searching exact text from the messages. The goal is to find record's ID in table Messages.

Go to Execute SQL tab and on SQL string paste: update messages set body_xml='write the updated text in the quotes or leave no space in the quotes for empty message' where id=the found ID of the record from table messages

Example: update messages set body_xml='tra la la' where id=94777

Click execute query -> look for error messages below -> click the save changes icon

Open Skype and see the result... Enjoy :wink:
