Quicken no longer connects with my Credit Union

I have been connecting to my credit union since the day it became available using MS Money.  Now that Money is no longer made I've been using Quicken with mixed results.  

I have 2 accounts at my credit union with different account numbers and all of a sudden Quicken will only connect to the credit union with one account.  I can't even open exported data in the one account.  I get an error message that its a "hiccup" in the system and should be fixed within 24 hours, but it's been going on for over a week now.  In the Online Services tab of account details, it says that a connection has been made between this account and my credit union.  I can click the button next to it to remove the connection, but nothing happens.

I've even tried to add a new account but Quicken will not connect.  

For the life of me, I can't figure out why it will connect using one account number but not the other.

Why oh why did Microsoft abandon Money. . . . .

Please try this: Deactivate / Remove both credit union accounts from One Step Update and then reactivate them. Be careful to properly link each bank account to the matching Quicken account.
Creating a backup of your Quicken data file just before you start working on this might be a good idea.

By the way, do you have all the available bug fixes installed for your version of Quicken? Click Help / About Quicken. For Quicken 2010, the response should read "Release 10". If not R10, you need to update Quicken.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
