Error CC 501 [Wells Fargo Advisors]

Ross Member ✭✭
I have been trying to set up downloads from Wells Fargo Advisors for the last 2 weeks I keep getting Error CC 501 with an explanation to not call Wells Fargo as it is a problem with the server and WF can't fix the problem. I had no difficulty setting up downloads with First Clearing.
What to do now?

    If your Wells Fargo Advisor account(s) is an investment account then perhaps you have been trying to set up the account with the wrong connection method.  CC-XXX error codes usually indicate something is wrong with an Express Web Connect EWC) connection but investment accounts need to use Direct Connect (DC) instead.  So, if you are trying to set up an investment account with EWC, CC-501 is an appropriate error code.
    Setting up DC connections is not always intuitive because Quicken tends to default to EWC when multiple connection methods are available. You can make sure you get set up with DC when doing Add Account by clicking on Advanced Options during the set up process.  Then follow the prompts and when asked which connection method you want to use be sure to select Direct Connect.
    Let us know whether or not this is the cause of the issue and if these steps resolved it for you.
