Can I exchange an exchange?

I recently purchased an EOY Odd timeshare at Marriott Ko Olina. I exchanged my 2009 usage to a Marriott in Spain for August 2009. Due to a change in circumstances we will not be able to travel to Spain at that time. Am I able to exchange back to Ko Olina, or other timeshares? Also if I can exchange again does it have to be in 2009 or can it be in 2010? Would this in any way effect my Ko Olina usage for 2011?

Thanks
Patrick

For starters, here is a blip from the II FAQs sticky under the EXCHANGE area.

If I have a confirmed exchange, and then find a better one while searching II, can I upgrade?
A.
• Yes, by telephoning II and paying a second exchange fee. (Note that if you do this, be very careful to check your online “history,” as II has been known to mess up these second exchanges!) Upgrading a confirmed exchange can be done but the original week used for confirmation must have sufficient trade power to secure the upgrade. For example, you confirm a studio using resort “A”. Then see a two bedroom available using resort “B”. You want to upgrade your resort “A” exchange to the two bedroom. Resort “A” must have sufficient trade power to get the two bedroom unit. This generally won’t apply inside Flexchange, 59 days to check-in or closer, as trade power restrictions are mostly lifted.
Changing would not affect your 2011 usage, as that is a Marriott thing, and this issue deals with II.

As far as the 2009/2010 question, my guess would be that the "2 years after checkin time" (of the originally exchanged week) would apply.

I'm sure this answer is not complete -- with all the fine details that many of the experienced TUGgers know --- so hopefully others will add more here... :D
