How to track and convert old link codes?

An affiliate program that I'm advertising was acquired/merged with a larger co. about 5 years ago. They apparently changed all affiliate's referral link codes but unfortunately, mine were never updated. However, all my links work, have what was the correct link code & affiliate ID# from before the merger, and still lead to the affiliate program's join page.

Upon contacting the affiliate program by email, they told me the link code's are not correct because they do not contain the new affiliate ID#. I made several good faith inquiries about any traffic/sales that may have been sent via these links for the past 5 years but I was ignored on each occasion.

That said, how difficult is it to track & convert old affiliate referral link codes, in order to properly credit affiliate accounts?
