driver side door handle of an astro van yr. 1987

i had recently replaced the driver side door handle of my 1987 astro van. I bought the part from the dealer. when i thought i was done, i closed the door to try it. I was not able to open it anymore. now, i am able to get into the car using the other doors. i have not re-installed the panels yet because it did not re-open. is there a way to open it again. what went wrong?
please help.

thank you very much!!!!!!

it was the outside door handle that i replaced. now, the door won't open at all. keys won't do it. if i pull the door handle, there is no resistance at all, nothing is felt not even a sound. the door panel were not re-installed so i can still gain access to the inside where the nuts are (if i take out the driver seat). is there something inside it that i need to press or pull or something to open the door?

Inside door handle or outside?
You may want to check and make sure you installed the linkages properly.And there is nothing binding them up.
