Error in Online Balances

Anyone else notice that the online balances reported on Quicken forvarious banks have gone out of whack since about November?

I see this with a variety of banks such as PNC, Ally, etc. which all worked fine before then. If I log on the the bank's website itself the online balance there is now different than what Quicken is showing as the online balance.

It makes reconciling to an online balance impossible.

    Hello @Gary587

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize for the issue you're having. Some other users have also had issues with their online balance appearing as aa number different than that of the register. One thing that has worked for some people is trying to deactivate/reactivate the accounts. I'll leave steps on how to do so 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 a chance see if you're able to get one of you accounts lined up by trying this. If not we can see what we can try next.

    That made it worse!!!!

    After spending a half hour deactivating them and reactivating. I get a message saying can't connect to Quicken and don't contact PNC bank about it!

    Clicking on the Not sign next the PNC accounts then attempts to find the accounts after log on but the only action now available is "don't add to Quicken"!

    Then if you click on one step update, it says one or more accounts need to be added to Quicken. clicking on the box "fix now" does nothing.

    So I'm in worse shap then we started.

    Ok , Now PNC bank worked on a Update all, but no online balance is displayed at all on the bottom of the register. If you now try to reconcile to an online balance it says the online balance is $0.00

    Same thing has happened at Ally. No online balance is displayed at the bottom of the register anymore, just the question mark that used to follow it.
  • I have been having the same issues with PNC in not receiving all cleared transactions. If I manually clear it, it gets wiped out after I update again
