My bank made me change my user name and password. Now I can not update my bank transactons. How do I update my bank information in Quicken?

I had to change both my user id and my password with my bank.


Since you have to change the username, you have deactivate all accounts in Quicken with this bank.

First be sure to have (or make) a backup of your Quicken data file ... just in case something goes wrong ...
Go into Edit Account Details (right-click the account name in the Account Bar), click the Online tab, click Remove from One Step Update. Click the General tab. The Customer ID field should now be editable. Clear it or enter the new customer ID. Click OK to save it.
Repeat this process for all other accounts you have with this bank. _ALL_ accounts with this bank must be deactivated for the next step to work.
When done, go back to the Online Services tab of one of the accounts. Click Activate One Step Update. Very carefully read all screens and follow prompts. When you get the screen which lists all accounts found at your bank, carefully verify that Quicken is suggesting the right connection between bank account and Quicken account.
A correct linkage should say something like: [Bank checking] LINK [MYChecking]
If it is not correct, click the ADD / LINK / IGNORE choice/button and choose the correct Quicken account from the list.
Repeat this for all other accounts listed on this screen.
Proceed. There will be a transaction download as part of this process. Carefully accept downloaded transactions. If older transactions that have previously been downloaded and accepted, re-accept. If in doubt, delete a downloaded transaction before creating a duplicate register transaction.

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.
