Starting early Monday morning, any request from MD to Truiist, or an attempt to request an online payment results in this message window:
There was an error communicating with your financial institution. The details of this error are below.

Bank Name: Truist Online Banking
Account: BB&T Debit Account
Account Number: XXXXXXX

A communication or parsing error occurred. This could be the result of a network problem, a proxy error, or misconfigured server.
Error Description: HTTP Error:400 Bad Request

My Moneydance software is Version 2022.5 (4091)

You can contact me at 80xxxxxxxx, if you wish

Thanks, George Fitzpatrick

    Hello, I have attached a java console log out of MS when I tried to refresh the connection settings

    Hi George,
    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Please navigate to Extensions->Manage Extensions and install the Toolbox.

    Launch Toolbox and navigate to Toolbox Options (on top left corner) and select -
    Update Mode->Yes->Do Back Up Now (recommended). Then, navigate to Menu: Online Banking (OFX) Tools
    In the resulting window, under Update Functions you should select :

    Delete OFX Banking Service / Logon profile (

    Finally, you should try recreating the connection as outlined here.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support

    Hello Maddy, that appears to have resolved the errors - thank you!
    If you wish to make this solution public, I agree - it might help other MD users.
    BTW, would I be correct to assume that my Truist online connection settings had been corrupted, and needed to be removed (disabled?) and re-defined ?
    Thanks again, Fitz

    I'm very pleased to hear that, George!

    Since the Error:400 Bad Request is a generic error, it could be due to different factors, ie.: server issues, a change a the bank's end etc. Usually, removing the service info and recreating the connection helps resolving the problem as it happened in this case.

    (Thank you Stuart as ever ;))
