Book a flight with cash, change the flight with points

I booked a flight using cash. I would now like to change the flight, but I would like to pay the additional charge with RR points rather than cash. Is this possible?

Hello.

 

To the best of my knowledge dollars and points are not interchangeable. So you can pay for your ticket completely with cash or completely with points, but not with a combination of the two.

Booking either way, and then subsequent changes have to be in the same format - no topping off a cash fare with points unfortunately, or making a later change.
