    Was assisted by Peter Evans over the phone on this. Had to Deactivate, then Reactivate the account with the OL-301-A error, completing a Quicken Validate of my Quicken accounting data file. After that, no more error.

    Many thanks.

    I was having a problem updating 7 accounts at Chase. Peter Evans helped me to refresh the information from the Chase servers which solved the problem! Thank you!
