Discover is not downloading again!!
I have the same problem. It only worked once for me, then stopped again. The previous thread said it was solved and closed, I'd say NO.
Hello @Steve DaVanzo,
To help troubleshoot this issue, could you please provide more information? When did it stop working again? Are you getting any error messages or error codes when you try to update your accounts? If you're not getting any errors, then what is happening when you try to update your accounts?What kind of accounts are failing to update (checking, savings, credit, etc)? Which connection are you using (Discover Bank, Discover Card, etc)?
I have two accounts with Discover. A savings and a Discover More Card Account. The savings account has always updated correctly, therefore all details are for the Discover More card. The last time Discover card updated was 11/03. I have tried "update all online accounts" as well as "update selected online account". The Update Summary always indicates that there was a successful connection and also reports that 0 transactions were downloaded. This behavior has occurred on and off since June or July. I use my Discover Card at least once per week. The connection is through Discover Bank and has not changed since March of 2023.
Thank you for your reply,
To get the card to download properly, I would recommend that you first backup your Quicken file, then deactivate just the Discover More Card Account. Once it is deactivated, please go to Accounts>Add Account and try connecting it to the Discover Card instance.
Follow the prompts to reconnect the account and carefully relink it in your Quicken. If it sees your savings account also, make sure that it's set to Ignore, since you do not want to change the instance the savings account is connected to.
Please let me know how it goes!
Thanks for the suggestion, however, it still does not load any transactions after 11/3/2023 and now I have lost all transactions prior to 9/14/2023.
Thank you for your response,
Transactions shouldn't go missing if you're reconnecting the account. Did the account get added as a new account, or were you able to link it to the existing account? Going to Accounts>Hide and Show Accounts should allow you to see all accounts in your Quicken file, if you want to check to see if you ended up with a duplicate account.
I hope this helps!
There is a second Discover account in the Accounts listing. It is marked as closed and the last entry in the register is from 2010. In addition, I never used that account with online updates, it was strictly a manual account. I have used Quicken continuously since 1998. Yeah, I'm old! I loaded a backup from the time when Discover was updating correctly and this old account is also listed the same as it is today. I have reverted back to the backup I made prior to attempting your suggestion. I don't know if the size and age of my file could be a source of the problem. If there is a way to trim it back to seven years ( I need to keep 7 years for IRS purposes) I'd be game to give it a try.
Thanks for all your help. I know that in the grand scheme of things this is probably not a big deal, but I really appreciate your help.
