When I try to add Configurable product

I got this error

Only attributes with scope "Global", input type "Dropdown" and Use To Create Configurable Product "Yes" are available.

I check the attribute set and remove all attribute except system attribute

but I still got error. I check description attribute it's textfield type

Description attribute only textfield is needed

I'm confusing how to create configurable product .. what am I missing?

According to Magento, if you want to create a configurable product then you need first create an attribute:

  1. Scope: should Global
  2. Type: Dropdown
  3. Use To Create Configurable make it yes.

Then you need assign this attribute to attribute set

  • Ah I need to add at least one attribute for that instead of I have to all all attribute that kind I got it thanks!

You select scope as 'Global', input type as 'drop down' , So can see 'Use To Create Configurable ' .
