Ally Bank updating checking account totals during one step update, but shows no transactions

I have had this problem for several weeks, but minor, so ignored. Applies to Ally Bank checking account only. All other accounts seem to work fine. During one step update, the account balance will change and be correct, but no transactions show up, but the weird thing is that I will get a "C" by an open item in the cleared box....not necessarily the correct open item. Have had several checks with same amount and it puts the "c" for cleared in any line... often the incorrect one. Several days later, the transactions will show up correct.

    Hello @rbeau17a

    Thank you for providing those additional details, although I apologize that you have not yet received a follow-up response.

    From the description provided of this behavior, it sounds as though you may the option to automatically accept transactions turned on and this may be an issue with transactions auto-matching incorrectly.

    Please let us know if you do manually review and accept your downloaded transactions or if you allow Quicken to automatically add them to your register.

    Are any transactions downloading from Ally Bank currently?  If so, does this behavior occur for any specific transactions, like a transfer transaction for example?

    If so, please also go to the Edit menu > Preferences option and select "Transfer Detection" from the list.  On the right side of the window, which options are selected for the Transfer Detection?

    If this behavior is affecting all downloaded transactions from Ally Bank, instead please go to the Help menu > Report a Problem option.  In the window that opens, enter "Attn: Sarah" in the subject line, check each of the files listed and in the comments section please include specific examples of affected transactions, including the date, payee name and dollar amount of the transaction.  Once sent, please just reply here to let me know so I can retrieve the report from the system.

    Thank you.
