# Open Multiple Quantity Items (updated)

In some cases, if you have more than one of an item you might have listed it as an Allow Multiple Quantities item and configured it to Allow Multiple Winners.

The example item closed after bidding has ended with three winners.

# How To Re-Open The Item

Since this item cannot be opened using the Open/Close Bidding functions, you will need to re-open this item using its Item Details Summary tab (see Open Bidding From Item Details) although there is a step that needs to be taken first.

# Duplicate The Item

In order to take into account the three winning bids from the original auction of the item, you can use the Duplicate Item function and then make adjustments as needed to the "duplicate".

Using the Duplicate Item function allows you to retain all of the original information about the item; and, it allows you to make changes as needed without affecting that historical data.

IMPORTANT
Remember, before saving the Duplicate Item, or at least make note of the relevant values and fields being used by the item you should update such as the Item Number, Title, Quantity, and Override online bidding end time.

At a minimum, the Item Number will need to be changed before you can save.

...continuing from the example above.

Once the item is saved, you can either re-open it immediately; or, you can make further adjustments to suit your After Event Sales needs.

# Re-Open The Item

Once all of the above has been addressed as needed for the item you can now just click on the Open Bidding button in the sidebar in the Bidding section.
