INVACCTFROM in qfxlog

I see the following in qfxlog after a transaction update:

<INVACCTFROM>
<BROKERID>nbofx.fidelity.com
<ACCTID>85931
</INVACCTFROM>

Can anyone shed some light on this? I'm guessing it has something to do with an invalid account. Whatever it is, can I tack it down can fix it?

    That doesn't stand for "Invalid", it stands for "Investment Account which the funds should be taken From".
    Here is an entry from my OFXlog with personal info replaced.

    <INVACCTFROM>
    <BROKERID>xxx.xxxxxxxxx.xxx
    <ACCTID>###########
     </INVACCTFROM>

    Thanks. When I first saw this log entry it was just after receiving an error message that Quicken couldn't download transactions from 85931 (or some such pop-up message). I didn't write it down so paraphrasing, but it only showed the number 85931 and no account name. I did a manual transaction download from Fidelity and go no error message but the above messages still showed up in the log. Apparently the download was OK.
