How to Change the web address of your bank?

Using q2007 successfully with latest os x.  However, for years now, when I hit the download button while in checking register to launch to my bank website - it goes to an outdated bank website for Bank of America.  I have not been able to figure out where to fix this.  I have to manually go to my bank website and sign in.  Then go back to Q2007 and download/import.  
Can someone tell me where to change the web address within quicken for my bank.  Right now , the "download" brings me to online.bankofamerica.com  which is incorrect.  It should direct me to https://www.bankofamerica.com/.   THanks.

Answer

If your financial institution "options" in your Quicken Mac 2007 program shows Bank of America with CA or ID/WA after it (based on your description of "has a few BOA specific to state"), this means that your FIDir.txt is grossly outdated, which could be why you're seeing an incorrect URL in the program.

Bank of America merged all of those entries over the course of the past 23 months into the single Bank of America - All Other States BID.  For Quicken Essentials Mac, there's the added Quicken Connect option that's not available for Quicken Mac 2007, and would not show up on a QMac2007 FIDir.txt.

To make sure that your FIDir.txt is fully updated to the most recent/current list, follow http://quicken.intuit.com/support/help/GEN82706.html to update.  Once that's done:

1. Open your Account List
2. Edit your BofA account
3. Change the Download Transactions option from Web Site to Not Enabled
4. Changed the Financial Institution name at the top to Bank of America-All Other States
5. Change the Download Transactions back to Web Site

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.
