how do i convert a qif to qfx?

Since my 2010 version of Quicken only allows import of QFX files and my 401K transaction history is only available in a QIF file is there a way to convert the QIF to a QFX file?

No, and even if you did, it probably wouldn't work.  The QFX format is an Intuit proprietary format and Quicken confirms that the financial institution that the data is from is a licensed data provider, so you can't "fake" one.
You can however, tweak the QIF file using the instructions in this post to make it usable:

Make sure you have a recent backup in case something goes wrong and you need to revert to the backup.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
