Transfer Data Between Users

A Question for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.
So my friend created his character on the wrong user, and he made too much progress to just reset and start over. Is there any way to transfer the villager data to a different user or is he just out of luck?

    For me, I use JKSV (save dumper) to switch between the savefiles of my gf and mine. I'll not let you switch the user but when you want to play you load the save file you want. It's a bit tricky but it do well for me. Because once you made a villager it will be bound with the user profile and get an error of you remove the user. And you will have to recreate a new island or play with the villager you was erased. 
    You also, can try to rename Villager0 and Villager 1 with JKSV in the savefile you dump. Villager0 is the 1st character.
