I've had an ongoing issue with the bank feed working sometimes and not others. Usually if I leave it and come back a week later I can get it to work. About 3 weeks ago it stopped working altogether. I've been logging in almost on a daily bases and refreshing the feed but nothing. I have 100 transaction left on our plan and it's been like that the whole time.

Hi there Mel,
Which bank are you attempting to pull feeds from?

Can you let us know what's happening specifically when you attempt to pull your bank data transactions through ie. the process you're going through.

The below are you some troubleshooting steps that you can try but if it doesn't help, can you please let me know the info above.

Reckon One - eliminate screen refresh issues
i. Switch between the Transactions from bank tab and the Reckon One tab several times.

ii. Unlink the bank feed from the bank ledger account in Bank Connections; View the Transactions from Bank tab; Reconnect the bank feed to the bank ledger account; View the Transactions from Bank tab.

iii. Change the Bankdata- retrieve last field.
Cogwheel icon > Settings > General > Book Settings;
Scroll down to the 'BankData – retrieve last field' > Change the number to 1 (one) > View the Transactions from Bank tab > Reset the 'BankData – retrieve last field' to your preferred number > View the 'Transactions from Bank' tab.

Hi Rav

It's the Commonwealth bank. I tried all 3 of your suggestions below and it still happens. It still shows 100 transactions and nothing is imported from September 18th to now.

In 'Bank Account' I click on the September (or October) then click 'Refresh' then go to 'Transactions from bank'. After a little while it says "There is nothing here yet".  I then click the refresh button of the browser` and go back to 'Transactions from bank' but still nothing.

Thanks for getting back to me Mel,
Can you please try one more thing, on the bank transactions screen can you please hold down the Ctrl button and while doing so press F5. The page will do a 'hard refresh'.

Is there any change after this?

I did that but it made no difference. On the top right of the page there is some text on a green background which says:

Upload source: Bank feed: Commonwealth Bank CBA (Australia) - Banking [Feed Import Requested]
Date: 23 Oct 2018
Completed: Yes

Thanks Mel,
I'll need to come back to you on this one as I've asked our BankData team to investigate it a bit closer. I'll keep you posted.

Hello Mel,

Thanks for your patience.

From the 19th of September the ,CBA Yodlee connection developed an error which Yodlee did not fix until the start of this week.  It appears that when the CBA became available again, your connection did not resume the daily update schedule.  You can rectify this by refreshing your credentials with Yodlee:
  1. Banking > Bank Connections > Connect an account
  2. on the CBA line click on the link in the Status column (Active)
  3. enter your bank credentials
  4. wait a short while as Yodlee retrieves transactions since your last update
  5. When the status changes from Download Requested to Active, check for updated transactions.
Check again each day to confirm that daily updates are processing as they should.

Did you know you can get a direct feed to your CBA bank accounts?  They are more secure and more reliable.  Just request them again and select CBA form the higher shorter list of banks, enter your bank details, download, sign and send in your form to us on and we'll arrange it with the bank.

Hi John

I do not believe Yodlee has fixed their connection error yet as last night I did what you suggested but I got the same results at that time and this morning as well.

I have also downloaded and signed the authority form for the direct feed and sent it to the email address you provided. Thanks for your help.

Regards Mel
