LPL Financial - "Unknown Type" when trying to Add Accounts to Quicken

When I try to set up accounts at LPL Financial, I get:
ACCOUNT 1 Unknown Type Ignore Personal
ACCOUNT 2 Unknown Type Ignore Personal
ACCOUNT 3 Unknown Type Ignore Personal
ACCOUNT 4 Unknown Type Ignore Personal
ACCOUNT 5 Unknown Type Ignore Personal
where each of the account names "ACCOUNT n" is correct.

Any known way to fix this so they aren't of unknown type? (Like most LPL accounts, they are broker-advised accounts.)

    have not seen this - must be something weird that LPL is sending for account type

    So how do I look at and/or fix the account type sent during connection setup?

    I would suggest contacting Quicken Support - as per the numbers listed on the REAL website - Not sure what might show up in any of the Quicken LOG files..

    I spent some time on the phone with Quicken Support. They acted surprised even though I have reported this several times to them. I sent them log files and a screen shot. I sure hope they will respond this time. PLEASE ESCALATE!

    Note that it happens even with a NEWLY CREATED .qdf file: I created test.qdf and attempted to add accounts from LPL Financial. Again, the same Unknown Type errors. Sigh.

    I have the same issue. Download to Quicken button on AccoutView ( works but requires manually logging in to download. I'm running Windows 10 and R24.14 for Quicken.

    I too am experiencing this problem when trying to add an LPL Account to Quicken (i.e. Unknown Type showing for all of my LPL accounts).. I contacted Quicken support and they said it probably is an LPL problem -- and my LPL Financial Adviser said I needed to contact Quicken. So here we go with the finger pointing. While I do not have a solution, I just wanted everyone on this thread to know that you are not alone -- this is a real problem. Since I know for a fact that I've added LPL accounts successfully into Quicken in the past, I have a feeling that this is a Quicken problem, not LPL.

    Quicken Support - please look into this issue ASAP. There are a number of users that can provide with whatever information you need to get this resolved.

    I am running Q2020, Build I recently migrated my accounts to LPL Financial and had no issues setting up the new accounts from the LPL website. I am concerned that LPL is not appearing in the One Step Update dialogue and I get the following message when I attempt to download manually:

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
