I've been having a problem downloading transactions from my Schwab Checking account

QM2017, 4.8.4, Mac O/S 10.14.4. Have been unable to download transactions from my Schwab Checking account for about ten days. Have called Quicken Tech Support five times after thinking the problem was resolved each time only to have it reappear the next day. The temporary fix has been to deactivate and the reactivate the Schwab Checking account. Doing that enables me to download the day's transactions. Problem reappears the next day with the same error messages in the Account Status window. During my most recent call the technician said that Quicken is aware of the Schwab problem. Also note, all my Schwab Brokerage accounts download properly.

    Thought I'd update my previous comments of April 3, 2019. The problem persists and is repeatable. Every day when I want to download my Schwab Checking transactions I must first Deactivate Downloads and the Set up transactions downloads. I may try calling Tech Support once again, but after five calls I'm not optimistic that the problem will be resolved. (:o(

    Using QM2017 4.8.4, OS 10.14.4. I just discovered that one (of several) of my Schwab IRA accounts has not downloaded any transactions since mid-December 2018. Logging in to my Schwab account via their Web page reveals that there are transactions since mid-December. I've tried Deactivating downloads and then Set up transaction download several times to no avail. Quicken reports that all downloads were competed. Since all other IRA downloads continue to work as they should I'm at a loss to what other remedies I can try. Suggestions/comments?

    Error OL 301 with Schwab accounts (or "General error 2000")?

    Logon to your Internet account at Schwab's website and make sure that in your profile, Security Center, "Third Party Access" is set to "Allow".
    Wait several minutes before you try to download from Quicken again.

    Quicken Mac users: Make sure that your account is connected to Schwab using "Direct Connect" protocol.

    Thank you for your rapid response.  Third Party Access is set to Allow and Direct Connect is the configuration. Also, all other Schwab Brokerage accounts download without an issue and, until 20 December 2018, this account downloaded too. No error codes have been exhibited.

    Since I'm not a Mac expert, I'd say it's time to call Quicken Support on the phone and request help.  Let them do a screen share session with you to review a download log file on your computer, to determine the nature of the problem and to figure out how to fix it.

    Hello @Ken W.

    Thank you for taking the time to share the details of this issue with the Community, although I apologize that you have not yet received a response.

    I took the liberty of reviewing the recent contacts with Support, but had a few additional questions for you, I apologize.

    Are the Schwab Brokerage accounts and Checking account connected with the same Username and Password?

    If so, what website URL address do you visit to review the account activity?

    When downloading transactions in Quicken do you typically connect with the Direct Connect or the Quicken Connect connection method?

    Do you receive any type of error message or code in the Account Status window when the account update fails?  If so, what is that code/message?

    Please let us know, thank you.
