Importing simple products to use in a configurable product

I was playing around with magento’s import/export tools and came upon a problem.

I wrote a small program that generates a csv file for the purposes of importing into magento. It follows exactly the same format as the exported csvs from magento itself, and each line has a unique sku . When the products are imported, they appear correctly in the products listing, but cannot be used to create a configurable product. They are simply invisible in the “associated products” menu.

Is there a way to make configurable products by importing a large amounts of simple products?

Edit: The problem seems to have solved itself, although I’m not sure how.
