We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.
Which version and build of Moneydance are you using?
To check, open Moneydance and select Help --> About Moneydance (or Moneydance --> About Moneydance on a Mac) where the version and build number will be displayed.
If you haven't already, you should try to recreate the connection with your bank. You will need to disable your current connection 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 Online --> Setup Online Banking
Click the "Disable" button. If you don't see this button, just close the window.
Repeat the previous steps for any additional accounts at the same institution.
Select Online --> Setup Online Banking (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 long list of available banks will force Moneydance to download the updated information, which should then allow you to connect.
Let me know if you continue to have connection problems after recreating your connection and we'll troubleshoot further.

Can you try completely resetting your connection to your bank and see if that fixes the problem you're seeing?
To do this, you'll need to force clear the current connection information for your bank in Moneydance. I'm sending a file called 'remove_one_service_2017.py' that will help do that.
Before proceeding, take a manual backup via File --> Export Backup.
To use the .py file, first save it to your computer and then follow these steps:
In Moneydance, select Window --> Python Scripting (Choose 'MoneyBot' if you're using the 2019 version).
In the window that opens, select 'Open Script' then navigate to the .py file wherever you saved it on your system.
Select 'Run/Run Snippet' to execute the file.
You will be asked to select which connection you want to clear. Choose your bank, and click OK. You'll get a confirmation message when the connection has been removed. Close the window when done.
Set up the connection to your bank like normal choosing the "New Connection" button. Since all of your settings have been cleared, you should get the most recent connection information for your bank.
Hopefully, that will work. If it doesn't, let me know and we'll continue troubleshooting.

Thanks for letting us know about this issue! I've filed a ticket in our ticketing system regarding this issue, so the developers will be looking into it.
As a temporary workaround, the best way to get your files into Moneydance is to use a web browser to download them from your bank's web site.
You can download into QFX, OFX, OFC or QIF files (aka Quicken or MS Money files), any of which will import cleanly into Moneydance. You can find the steps for manually importing your data in this article.
You can also open your banks website directly from Moneydance by selecting Online --> Open Account Website, which makes the download process easier.
Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience.
