    Same issue. Logged into my Amex account to download transactions manually and found the following:

    Moderator Quicken Jasmine, on Ticket #9623555 has posted that Quicken has escalated the download problem, but on the AMEX website, I see this new posting:

    Of course, when deactivating and trying to reactivate, I still get the same OL-294A error. So it appears AMEX changed something and Quicken has not adapted to that change yet.

    I've been using Direct Connect since the beginning of time. I see no such notice when I log in.

    Tried the Deactivation method, failed, can't undo that. Says Quicken can't connect to American Express.

    Love it. Quicken update says we are getting a faster, more secure way to download accounts .... and the update completely hoses up trying to update all my American Express accounts.

    Is it just me, or are all of you getting tired of paying big bucks to have these kind of headaches?

    Is there anyway to turn off any and all program updates if we are happy with the version we're using?

    I'd give up any and all future "improvements" and "new features" for Quicken if I had a stable version.

    Day 2 - 08.02.22 - American Express OL-294-A - This needs a proper resolution and not a Rube Goldberg fix. Quicken and Amex need coordination and not a disjointed fix.

    Quicken folk, no word from y'all on this. What's the story?
  • I also have this problem and I have had the same problem with the BJ's Master card since 06/23/2022. That's almost six weeks and Quicken has not resolved the problem as of yet. It seems that this AMEX problem is affecting many more users and I sincerely hope that it doesn't take Quicken a month and a half to repair it as history has shown me with the BJ's master card!

    For what it's worth, I followed the instructions that were on the Amex site to fix Quicken issues (that happened following Amex SW updates) and it was no help. Deactivating, and reactivating Online services in Quicken for my Amex account did nothing--I still errored out when running 1-step update.

    After deactivating the account, I also tried creating/adding a new Amex CC account--same thing.

    So it's broken for sure. Hope Quicken/Amex gets to the bottom of it soon.

    In the meantime, going on to the Amex site, selecting download transactions for Quicken (.qfx file), and entering into Quicken is an OK workaround (better than every transaction manually anyway)--just have to watch out for duplicate transactions.

    Same issue. Quicken Deluxe Windows 10 R42.21. Account stays in "error recovery" even after I restart pc.

    Try Deactiving your Problem Registers in Quicken 42.21 and then Set Up Now, again.

    Remember to make a Manual Backup, prior to major changes. If the Major Change works, do another Manual Backup.

    Did this work for YOU and restore OSU access to AMEX?

    Is this something you're just suggesting to give a try or did you verify this fixed the issue?

    I am suggesting to try. I can't verify this works or not, because I don't have AMEX Account. Remember with Manual Backups, you can always go back.

    > @tribbiani - all you need to do is to exclude them from being added to Quicken.  All the activity for these "supplementary" accounts should be in your main account, so those other accounts are not needed and can be excluded or deleted.

    WHEW! Ok, cool. Thx. Was dreading yet another workaround I'd need to implement. Will try this once Amex is restored.

    Going out on a limb here...if it were that easy I'm sure the Quicken folk would have announced that as a fix already. To date, they have not.

    I saw someone state that Direct Connect was working for them. So, I gave it a try. I triple checked that it was going to do a Direct Connect. It failed with the exact same error.  Restored my file back and waiting on Amex to fix their system.

    Thanks for letting us know @Bill44 I always use Direct Connect, unless we’re forced to use EWC. This saved me time from following suggestions that appear to not work. Sometimes waiting is the best plan to save one’s time (and sanity).

    I also have a savings account with American Express Bank FSB, by the way.  That account (Express Web Connect) is working fine.  I only mention it  because of the new web login screen that started appearing a while back.   At this point, I am glad I kept them separate.

    THIS. Need to shut off automatic updates, and visit these boards for a week or so after an update to make sure there aren't major breaking changes. This is not the first time (by far) that an update has caused significant problems. Save yourself the headache and wait to update. I wish I'd remembered that this weekend.
