Q: "How can I assign a record to an inactive user?"

A: (1) You need to have Support activate the "Create Audit Fields" permission for you (and this is typically only activated temporarily), (2) this can only be done through the API (with a tool like Data Loader), and (3) it can't be done for all objects.  But it is indeed possible!  For more details, see
