How can I redownload from American Express after deleting a download from Quicken?

I downloaded transactions from American Express but did not get the complete download so I deleted from Quicken.  Now I am trying to download those transactions again but am not being allowed to.

    Quicken remembers the FITIDs of the downloaded transactions and rejects any duplicates, so that is why you can't get them a second time.  This is at an account level basis, so if you created a new account in the same file, you could download into it, then copy them to the original account and deleting the new account afterwards.
    If you do a download of the Web Connect file from the AmEx website, you could edit it adding a letter or number to the values of the FITID field in each transaction and then do the import, Quicken will see the transactions as new since the FITIDs are different.
