The error can occur when:

  • A Microsoft component installed in your system is having some issues.

There are multiple ways to resolve this issue. Though there are chances that the first step may resolve the issue, or you may have to perform all the steps in order to resolve the same. You are recommended to perform the steps in the provided sequence.

Solution 1: Check Vendor Names For Special Characters

  • Go to Vendors > Vendor Center.
  • Select the default Active Vendor drop-down and then click on All Vendors.
  • Check if the Vendor name has any special characters (!@#$%^&*), specifically the ampersand (&).
  • Remove the special characters and rename “&” to “and”
  • Save changes.

Solution 2: Switch To The Classic (Register) Mode

  • Go to Edit > Preferences
  • Select Checking and then navigate to the Company Preferences
  • From the the Bank Feeds section, select Classic Mode (Register Mode).

If you added/matched in classic mode and didn’t receive any error then this means that the issue is not with the bank but and a downloaded transaction or a damaged rule, vendor/payee or Microsoft component may be the reason behind the error. In such situations, proceed to Solution 3.
