Is there anyway to mass change profile assignments?

We are in the process of cosolidating profiles (taking it from about 10 down to 1) and I need to reassign the new profile to about 400 users. This is going to be very tedious if I have to do it one by one but I can't figure out another way to do it. I looked into inline editing, data loader, and apps but nothing seems to be available to make this kind of change en masse. Has anyone else done this before and if so, did you have to do it manually?

Hi Amanda, There is one more tool called workbench, i checked into it and i found profileid as a part of user table. It should be same in dataloader. Thanks, Pratik

Hi Amanda,

Have you tried with DataLoader with UserId & ProfileId and then perform Update operation. 

Thanks,

I looked at dataloader but the profile ID doesn't seem to be part of the user table. Is that the table I should be updating? Maybe I just missed it?
