In sending payroll information for direct deposit, I receive an error message: Problem adding new data to QB - Inconsistent data in downloaded transactions.

Hey there, @skaczmarek.

 

Welcome to the Community! I'm happy to help out here. The error, "Problem adding new data to QB - Inconsistent data in downloaded transactions." can be caused by a few things:
 

  • Invalid security certificate.
  • Sending in multi-user mode.
  • A network time-out prevents QuickBooks Desktop from accessing the server.
  • General Internet connection issues.
  • Internet security and personal firewall software settings.
  • Incorrect system date and time properties.

 

What I recommend is checking out our article on troubleshooting payroll errors and one of the solutions will resolve your issue. 

 

If you still run into any issues or just have other questions, feel free to let me know by using the Reply button below. I'll be here for you.

@skaczmarekI don't suppose you figured out a solution to this issue? I'm having the same issue today and none of the standard troubleshooting articles are helping. I thought I would ask before I jump on a 2 hour phone call with Intuit...

  3. Search for QuickBooks Desktop. Right-click the icon and select Run as administrator.
  4. While on the No Company Open screen, go to the Help menu and select Update QuickBooks Desktop.
  5. Go to the Options tab. Select Mark All and then select Save.
  6. Go to the Update Now tab and select the Reset Update checkbox.
  7. When you're ready, select Get Updates.

I've done all of these things. I had an expert on chat and he told me to wait for a phone call. No help. I have submitted two requests for phone calls and no one has called yet. Our payroll is on a deadline. Need some assistance asap.

Currently, this is still an ongoing investigation, and we haven't received any updates yet, @Bizisblooming. Rest assured that our engineers are currently investigating and working on an immediate fix.

 

Meanwhile, let's run the Verify/Rebuild tool to detect data damage.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Select Utilities, and choose Verify Data.
  3. If QuickBooks detected an issue, select Rebuild Now. Some users recommended that rebuilding data thrice fixes data damage.
  4. Click OK when you get the message "Rebuild has completed."

 

Once done, update your payroll tax table

 

If you're getting the same error message, I encourage you to reach out to our Customer Support Team. This way, they can add your account to the list of affected users so that you will be notified of any updates on the investigation's progress via email.

 

Here's how to contact our support:

1. Go to Help.

2. Click on Contact Us.

3. Enter your questions or concerns and click on Let's talk.

4. Choose either Start a chat or Get a callback.

This error is still under investigation by engineering however the work around is calling in or requesting a call for help. There is a verification problem related to modifying Direct Deposit information (adding / changing). Customer Support can request engineering to put a stop on erroneous error so you can push payroll through, all while you're on hold. I ran into this issue today, I modified an hourly employees direct deposit on 08/18/20 and am now attempting to run payroll today for our semi monthly salaried employees - Error Problem adding new data to QB. Inconsistent data in downloaded employees.  **Its an ongoing issue but my immediate problem was resolved in about 15 minutes**

Looks like we can be added to the list. This is very frustrating.

What do we need to do in order to submit payroll today?

Thank for the replay.

We do not have the "contact" button.

 

We put in a call to customer service and they were able to fix the issue while on the phone. The issue had to do with us changing a direct deposit acct. Doing this triggered whatever error QB is having; we did not somehow change the account wrong.

I will hope to see payroll sail through without issue this week.
