Since approximately July 1 I have not been able to download tx from my Discover Card accounts via Direct Connect. I receive an error:

The given customer ID or PIN is not valid. For more information, contact your financial institution.

Additional information from the server:
Signon (for example, user ID or password) invalid

DC works fine for other institutions.
I've attempted to reconnect by first disabling Online banking then starting a New Connection. But this hasn't worked. I called Discover and spoke to tech support and she said she had another called from a Moneydance user with the same issue.

Can you please advise?

    Hi Mjkop,

    This is a fairly strange problem and the issue appears to be with special characters in your username and/or password. You can read more about this here:

    To remedy this, I would suggest changing your Discover username and/or password to ensure that there are no special characters in them.
