Can you try re-creating your connection with your financial institution and see if that fixes the issue that you're seeing? You will need to disable your current connection to your bank and then recreate it using the New Connection button on the Online Banking Setup screen. To do so, you can follow these steps:
Select your bank account in Moneydance
Select the Online->Setup Online Banking button/menu
Click the "Disable" button. If you don't see a disable button, just close the setup window.
Repeat the previous steps for any additional accounts at the same institution.
Select the Online->Setup Online Banking button/menu (again)
Click the "New Connection" button and select your bank and hit OK
Continue with the setup process, entering your username/password
Make sure you pick new connection, even though your bank is still one of the connection choices after you disable it. Choosing your bank from the list of available banks will force Moneydance to download the updated information, which should then allow you to connect.
Please let me know if you continue to have connection problems after recreating your connection.

Sorry to hear the issue persists. Can you test to see if this behaviour remains in a new blank data set? You can create a new data set by navigating to File --> New, and use the File --> Open option to switch between data sets. If things behave as they should in the new data set, this would suggest an issue in your original data set, that we can look to resolve.

No problem Mary. Thanks for testing that. I'm sending a file called remove_all_services.py that will force clear the all current connection information for your banks in your data set. Before proceeding, please back up your Moneydance data set, just in case something goes wrong. You can create a backup using the File --> "Export Backup" menu option. So far, this hasn't caused any problems, but better safe than sorry!
To use the .py file, first save it to your computer and then follow these steps:
In Moneydance, select Window --> Python Scripting.
In the window that opens, select 'Open Script' then navigate to the .py file wherever you saved it on your system.
Select 'Run' to execute the file.
Wait a few moments until you see a message on screen, confirming the script has run successfully.
Once you have run the python script you should be able to set up connections with your banks as if for the first time. Please let me know how you get on.

Ian - That’s not what I expected. I used the script, confirmed that there was no online accounts set up, entered them 1 by 1. Told MD to download all accounts and the problem is back. So another piece of info. My AmEx account is labeled as “Delta American Express”. The message I get says American Express not found, then it continues on and comes to Delta American Express (after it processes a Chase account), and it processes fine. I’m stuck and bewildered at this point.

Ian - Figured it out…had an inactive account that was trying to download transactions. I don’t know why it tried to start just now, but I removed online banking from it (after I made it visible again) and it fixed the problem.
