    Sorry to hear of the issue you have encountered when connecting with your bank in Moneydance. I have updated our connection information for BBVA Compass and have requested our lead developer to push this change. I'm hoping once the new connection information is available in Moneydance you should be able to connect again with your bank.

    I will let you know as soon as this new connection information is available in Moneydance so we can test.

    Would this same issue affect all Quickbooks connections as well? How would we know if and when it is fixed?

    Hi Rob,

    The new connection information should now be available in Moneydance. Can you try connecting again now and let me know how you get on?

    Yes! The new connection information work.

    Now, the big questions... was this a BBVA change that they surprised you with? Will this happen in the future?

    Glad to hear the new connection information did the trick! BBVA Compass changed the security requirements to connect to their servers. Banks will rarely let us know about upcoming changes but we are on hand to make changes as and when they are required.
