Magento: Convert 115 Configurable products into Simple.

At the beginning we entered our products as Configurable products, since we have several colors for each item. After a while we noticed that since we dont need to keep individual Inventory stock for the different items it would be much easier to just make them as Simple products instead and use Custom Options for colors.

Therefore we now have 115 Configurable products and 650 Simple products and would like to convert the 115 into simple ones also.

With this i mean remove the configurable products and enter new Simple ones with the same SKU, Name, prices, information, pictures etc. I hope this is much easier than having to manually insert all of these from scratch again.

PS: Make backup of database and do changes on your own server before making changes to our site as it is a live one. We do not want any problems that could give us hours of downtime.

If you have any questions please ask. The shop in question is [url removed, login to view] and is run on properhost server and Magento ver. .

Also would like to avoid any problems with existing orders, would like to be able to access these orders to view old sales etc. So a solution should not remove anything in a way that it creates errors when accessing old orders that have the former Configurable products (perhaps badly explained but i hope you get the idea).

Skills: Magento, MySQL, PHP
