Why can’t I reopen my closed Solicitation to extend its close date?

CORE will allow you to extend a close date on a Solicitation if the Solicitation is still open.  However, the following error will appear if you attempt to extend the close date after the Solicitation has closed:


Overriding this error can result in other issues related to Solicitation dates, so, if a Solicitation date must be extended, do so before the Solicitation is closed.  If the Solicitation has already closed, it is recommended to create a new Solicitation with a new close date, and reference the previous Solicitation.
