Downloading transactions from Capital One causes wacky problems

I'm a long-time user. Over the past few months, I've noticed that when I download checking account transactions into Quicken for Mac from Capital One, all sorts of wacky mismatches happen (checks that I've already entered that have identical amounts get mismatched to downloaded transactions. Even worse, some transactions get mysteriously sent back in time 3 or 4 months, and I have to go and find them and change the date back).

Any help?

    Hello @wisemancamp

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize for the issue you're having. That is odd. It sounds like the transactions may not be downloading with an ID attached. Lets try seeing here if we deactivate and reactivate the accounts if we're able to get it to sync back with some of the transactions we're having issues with. I'll leave steps down below.

    First thing I'll recommend is to save a backup to revert back to just in case. You can find how to do so down below.

    Next we'll try deactivating all of the accounts. You can do so by following the article listed down below.

    Once all the accounts are deactivated go ahead and follow the article here on reconnecting the accounts.

     Once you get the chance let us know how it goes. If we're still having issues with downloads we may need to take a look at log files to see what exactly is happening.

    Sorry for delay. I tried this solution. It didn't fix the problem. I'm still having similar problems. When I download from Capital One, for a few transactions it reaches back into reconciled months and tries to match old transactions.
