How do I merge Outlook 2010 data files?

I use Outlook 2010. I have a data file named "Outlook Data File." It contains several email accounts. Somehow when I created 3 more email accounts they assigned themselves their own Data File. How do I combine these three rogue accounts into my main Outlook Data File?

select the mails (ctrl-a), and drag them to your main file, inside outlook.
and edit the account settings for the two other account to deliver new mails in the main file.

You got catched by the new default in Outlook 2010: The default is now that the mails for a new account is delivered into a new file, while in the previous versions default was to deliver in the standard (main) file.

Hello sunezapa....I understand the dragging into the main file part of your solution. I do not know how to edit the account settings for the now empty accounts so that future emails will go to the MAIN file. Please clarify with the steps to accomplish this.
