Why won't Quicken accept my Schwab passwords?

I recently updated my Schwab passwords. I have changed the Schwab passwords in my password vault, but I cannot get Quicken to accept them. I am either told (1) Quicken passwords need letters and number (I have them), (2) Schwab will not accept the passwords, or (3) log in incorrect. I worked with Schwab, but they couldn't solve the problem. They verified that my passwords were fine.

    Sometimes there is a disconnect between what is avail and allowed on the Schwab website - and what they have told Quicken to allow on the Quicken OSU.
    So... do you have any special chars & how long is the password ? -
    Sometimes the PW needs to be shorter, and not have extra special chars.

    It was the special characters. It works now - so much for extra security.
