How do I Change Simple Product to Configurable?

I’ve been searching threads, watching screencasts, and still no luck on finding an answer.

Hey Buffalokill - Actually a configurable product consists of a series of simple products. You’ll have to create and save your simple products first, then create a configurable product and associate existing simple products to it. This screencast will explain everything.

Good luck.

I guess you’ve a series of simple products where you’d like to change the attribute set? Well, at least this is a common problem me and my coworkers ran into. There is no way to do it, except for creating a new one.

Well Actually…

You can change a simple product into one with an attribute set.  It just takes being tricky and learning how to export and import.

If you export the products you want to make a Configurable Product out of, then you can change the Attribute Set.  Once you do this you can then re import them.  done.
