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

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.
