convert light switch to outlet

I would like to convert a light switch to an outlet. The light switch is one of 2 which controls the same light, therefore it is not needed. Is there much to this?

Do you have a neutral? If you have a group of whites connected only to each other you probably don't have a neutral. No neutral you don't have a complete source of power.

The light switch is one of 2 which controls the same light, therefore it is not needed.
Do you mean a 3-way circuit?

You need to tell us all the wires at both switches and how they are connected including if this is a 3-way what color wire to the common terminal (odd colored screw usually dark gray).
