Add Online Service to Existing 401K account

Options
I have a 401k account in my quicken file that I have had there for a few years. I want to now add the Online Services to the account (that was not done previously). When I try to do this, it forces me to create a new 401K account. I do not want to do that since there is several years of history in the account in my quicken file. Is there a way to add the online services to an existing 401K account?

    I do that and when I get to the Online Services Tap it wants me to set up a new account.

    I have a similar issue, but in reverse. I have created a connected account within Quicken for my 401(k). The connection is working fine, but it did not download history for the earlier years, meaning my cost basis in incorrect within Quicken. When I attempt to import the downloaded QIF data into my connected account, I get an error message stating imports are only allowed for "empty accounts." It seems the account is either connected or manual. I would be happy to delete my connected account, download the full history into a new account, and then reconnect the account. Any ideas?

    I see no further updates. It seems I will need to use trial and error.
