How do I fix syncing problems

When I attempt to sync I get the message that my credit card was not synced and there are illegal operations. How do I correct this?

    Hello @crghaddock,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community to tell us about your issue, though I apologize that you are experiencing this.

    Could you please provide which version of Quicken you have currently running?

    If you haven't already, I suggest resetting your cloud data from your Quicken desktop program and see if that may make a difference. However, before doing so, first, verify that the Dataset name and the File name match each other identically by navigating to Edit > Preferences > Quicken ID & Cloud Accounts (see below). 



    If they do not match, please click Edit dataset name and change the Dataset name to match the File name exactly the same (do not copy the file extension: ".QDF"). 

    Then, click OK in the preferences window and proceed to save a backup (just in case). From there, please follow the steps below to reset your cloud data.
    1. Navigate to Edit
    2. Preferences...
    3. Mobile & Web
    4. Make sure sync shows it's ON and click on Reset your cloud data 
    5. Wait for the sync reset to finish
    6. Navigate to the Mobile & Web dropdown menu 
    7. Select Cloud Sync to resync your data and to make sure no errors occur
    8. Wait for it to finish syncing 
    Once that is done, see if the issue still persists.

    Let us know how it goes!
