I'm starting a new thread for this, because I think it's going to take
a bit of effort to figure out this mess - and we probably only need the
final conclusion in the bug report itself, not all the interim stuff.
My main question right now is whether we can come up with any plan of
attack on this - we seem to have a number of attempts to map accounts
failing with different unhelpful error messages, from a variety of
institutions, with no help from those institutions. Some of these
mappings were thought to have worked previously. Other than continuing
to try with each of my accounts, I don't quite now what else to do.
Is there any chance we could get some help from the libofx team? I'm
not even sure right now what we would ask of them.
In terms of one more specific example, today I realized that one of my
Merrill Lynch accounts was already mapped. (I haven't been using
online update because of the issues of mixing cash and investment
transactions in the same account, but I'll leave that for another
rant.) I just did an on-line update, and it worked fine. I then
unmapped the account, and when trying to re-map it, I get
attempt your login again. If you continue to have difficulty, please
which is what I got earlier trying to map my one unmapped ML account.
I spent a while on the phone with Merrill Lynch this afternoon. The
best he was able to tell me is that this error usually shows up when
using an incorrect name or password. However, despite the fact that I
don't use Quicken, I managed to get him to escalate the call - so
hopefully someone with more specific information about their OFX
handling will look at it, but probably not for several days. In
addition, he said that what he was able to see in their logs was that
all my attempts at connections were listed as successful, but he
couldn't tell me why if it was successful, it gave me an error to try
One other interesting thing - the existing mapping uses Quicken Windows
2008 (QWIN 1700 from the log) which should not work, since by agreement
with Intuit, they only support the current and two previous versions.
I suspect their logic for for serving transactions for a stated account
is different from that for providing a list of accounts. I have not
yet tried changing this within the kmy file to see if it affects my
ability to download transactions.
One more question - are all these recent failures in the US, or are
there any elsewhere?
Thanks for any suggestions.
