Hi

I really hope someone might be able to help with this big problem i\’m having.

Basically we have added 350 products to the store. We added them as simple products but then realised they would work better as virtual products.

As this can\’t be changed in the admin panel we changed the product type in the table catalog_product_entity in our database as this was a suggested solution.

We changed the row - type_id from simple to virtual. 

Now no products are showing in the admin panel or the front end and i can\’t seem to find out what the issue is.

I can\’t reinstall the database as the backup copy we took has been corrupted so is no use.

We have a deadline of Friday to get the site finish and at the moment we can\’t get any existing products to show.

Thanks in advance for any help

If you change the type_id you must rebuild Product Flat Data.
