Importing Investment Transactions

Recently I had a problem with an investment account not downloading new transactions. These are the steps I did to work around the issue.
1. Exported data from investment account with a problem as a qif file. Account wouldn't download new transactions.
2. Disconnected online services for both investment accounts with same service.
3. Added new account to file. Did this manually without online setup.
4. Imported investment data to new account. Used online community information to edit qif file to match.
5. Deleted extra entries from linked bank account. Had no check number so easy to spot.
6. Deleted bad account from file.
7. Did edit and replace to edit item now linked to [unspecified account] to name of [new account].
8. Setup online access to both accounts using same service. Download transactions and edited and accepted transactions.

I use Quicken for Windows 2017.

    It is just Valic for downloads. Yes it works that way and has for quite some time. I just had this one account that was acting up for some reason. I don't know what caused the problem but this seemed to be the only fix that worked. I just thought these steps might help someone else in the future.

    The investment was with AIG Valic. They have both my IRA and Deferred Comp account. The Deferred Comp account was the problem. I hadn't downloaded transactions from that account since 2026 when I retired. Had to do RMD from that account which created a new transactions to download.
