I was able to do that before, for other sections and were successful but for some reason when I try to change the Open date, by clicking on the *, selecting the date from the pop up window, then save it.  The * usually changes to the date but it didn't.  I clicked on the * again and the date that I had selected and Saved, was still there but if I repeat the steps, the * is still there as well as the old date and time.  A pop up window quickly appears and disappears, which I don't recall happening before.

It's probably set at the wrong level. Some possibilities:

* for the top-level course folder, parameters cannot be set at the folder level.
* parameters set on a part-level do not cascade "up" - you might have set something for "Part 2" of a problem, which would only catch for a problem that has a Part 2

I would suggest going to the "Existing Parameters - Overview Mode," find the parameter that you set, and see what level it is set at.
