Prudential Retirement 401k Upload has stopped working again

Quicken Upload for a Prudential Retirement 401k plan has stopped working, again. Up until Oct 2021 the pattern based on the Account, SubPlan, and last 4 SSN worked. That pattern no longer works. Has anybody figured out a new solution?

    Thank you, Anja. This is a well know issue between Quicken and Prudential. The error returned is "Your financial institution does not recognize the account <account name><account ID>". The issue in the past was with the account ID. The Prudential account ID was not recognized. Somebody discovered that you had to provide your ID and additional info in a special pattern: <6 account number>"X",<6 didigt subplan number>"X"<last 4 digits of your social> for example"123456X123456X1234. This worked up until October of 2021.

    I have experienced the same issue very recently (March) -- this is after many months of it working just fine. I tried deleting the online connection -- it has not helped. I tried the instructions here:
    Now, when I try to add a new connection, Quicken freezes and doesn't allow me to continue or to cancel. Very frustrating.

    Here is the instruction page from Prudential. Its the multi-part account number pattern that no longer works. I haven't called Prudential yet to see if they have an updated "how-to".
