How do I reset last download date in update transactions?

It is not uncommon when  update transactions from financial accounts directly into quicken for no transactions to show up when there are. Quickent resets the "Last download date" to the date that I just tried to update. When this happens, I have to manually enter every sngle transaction up to the current 'last download date' before  can download new ones.

 Quicken says this

Q: For the first and subsequent downloads, what will be the default date range?
A: The first time the download page is used the "From" and To" date will default to
the last (most recent) financial transaction date. For subsequent downloads, the
download page will anticipate your next download request: the "From" date will
default to the "To" date used during the previous download and the "To" date will
default to the last (most recent) financial transaction date. NOTE: These default
dates can be overwritten"

I want to reset the last dowload date in Quicken so I can do the Update Transactions again for all the transactions since the last register entry. Thus the last download date would be manually reset say from 01/04/2010  to 12/05/2009 so all of decembers transactions could be attempted to dowload again (as they did not the first time).
    The first date range for download is determined by the FI as to how far back it goes but always ends as of the download date.  There is no way to "reset" the date for future downloads.  The only thing that you could do is to create a new account for download and that will act as a first download
    • Neil154... Thanks but your answer is not quite true. The way to solve it is to remove the One Step Updating function and then set it up again. It will then download the new transactions (and older ones that are matches and near matches and new that you wll have to sort though and delete and fix). This is better than a new file.  Thanks for the help.
