Question about Toolbox, MD Plus, and Transaction Download Dates

Last weekend I was finally able to download my Schwab transactions. But today, it told me I, once again, had to link to Schwab which I did, and it proceeded to repeat the download of all transactions from 4/1/22 onward! I then removed all the offending transactions, exited and relaunched so I'd have a good backup before entering toolbox.
Upon relaunching it proceeded ot download all Schwab transactions after 1/23/23.
In toolbox I viewed the Last Txn dates and say multiple per account, which surprised me. I used the Update mode to reset all to zero (I had to do this for each Schwab account) When done I produced the attached output which I find quote confusing. The lines with a current, January 2023 date appears to be good, but Fisher IRA, for example, still has a 4/1/2022 date which concerns me. And each account still has at least 1 "IS SET TO ZERO" line.
When in toolbox I did do an OFX cleanup before doing other actions since I knew there was some old stuff out there.

    Don’t worry about the lines like fisher ira and an old date. The important lines are

    INVESTMENT Fisher IRA 01/25/2023 ::grEzr43PM1UYPnZ3DybEfO9Nv4AXvNH3X6KvX

    And also the ones with ::ofx.

    The ones without these type entries are legacy and not used.

    Unless you have a problem….?

    I just realised why new md+ connections cause all dates to download and this is because the loooong number key changes for an account.

    Thanks! I appreciate the prompt response.
    After resetting the dates, the Drop down list of possible dates gave me
    January 23, 2323 as the highest option. I was hoping to put in yesterday.
    I just hope I don't have to reset the MD+ connection for a third time, as
    the second reset is what triggered all the duplicates.

    But all appears to be OK now.
    Keep up the good work in the toolbox!
