Matched incorrect security; how to fix?

While catching up on my years-long hiatus from MD, I downloaded transactions from TD Ameritrade. During that time they switched from a cash account to a money market cash account. On the first import, I accidentally matched to a money market security in a different investment. After realizing my error, I created a new security with the same security ID and new ticker matching the correct money market fund.

MD still downloads new transactions into the incorrect security. I change it to the correct one and delete the incorrect security, but the next month the incorrect security is automatically recreated when there's a new transaction. I'm fairly certain I tried disconnecting the online banking and re-creating it from scratch, but it seems like this incorrect connection was maintained.

What do I need to do so that new transactions match the correct security?

    Thanks, that looks like what I need. I'll have to wait until another Money Market transaction is downloaded to verify it worked, but my expectation is that it will work fine.
