A secondary file is a collection of one or more sections. Each section contains a description of the data, followed by the actual data. The offset in the primary file specifies the first section in the secondary file for messages with multiple sections.
The following table describes the fields in the header line of secondary files:
|Type (Required)||Type of data.||Body, Attachment, Schedule, Document, or Other.|
|Length (Required)||Length of data in bytes, including end-of-line characters.||Integer. If message is body part of a free document, the length must = 0.|
|Encoding||Reserved field.||Leave blank.|
|Islast||If TRUE, body or attachment is the last in the file for this message. If FALSE, the next section in the file is either body or attachment for this message.||TRUE or FALSE.|
|Name||File name of attachment.||Required for sections that are attachments and documents, and ignored otherwise.|
|Position (Optional)||Location, in bytes, where icon for attachment should be placed. Valid only for attachments.||Default is to the end of the message body. Required for sections that are attachments and ignored otherwise. Must be between -1 and the number of bytes in the body.|
|Format||File format of attachment.||None or Macbinary. Defaults to None. Required for sections that are attachments and ignored otherwise.|
The secondary file can contain data of five different types:
Body (message data), Attachment, Other, Document, and Schedule. A
message body and its attachments are in separate sections. Sections
are separated by blank lines.

Secondary files do not have to be associated with messages; documents or files can still be migrated. In the primary file, such files appear as standard messages. In the secondary file, you need to configure the file as follows:
It is very important that the file name in the Document section
include an extension. If none exists, add an extension that can
launch a viewer application.
Type,Length,Encoding,Islast,Name,Position,Format Body,0,,FALSE,,, Document,205,,TRUE,backoffi.txt,0, Microsoft BackOffice package includes Windows NT Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, SQL Server, and System Management Server.
Schedule data is moved to the user's mailbox as an attachment to a new mail message. The user opens the message and imports the data by double-clicking the attachment. If the data is not imported automatically when the user logs in the very first time, the user must install Outlook to import the data.
In the primary file, the schedule data appears to be another
message in the message section.

In the secondary file, set the body of the message to a length
of 0. The Migration Wizard automatically adds instructions for
importing the schedule file in English, German, French, or
Japanese, depending on the language of your Microsoft Exchange
Type,Length,Encoding,Islast,Name,Position,Format Body,0,,FALSE,,, Schedule,298,,True,HOWARDS.SC2,-1, SCHEDULE+2 EXPORT VERSION 103 ...
Note The first line in the schedule file must be a header line as follows:
SCHEDULE+2 EXPORT VERSION 103
Each line thereafter has schedule properties and values.
