Hi please help me for the past 3 weeks I tried linking my Absa Bank account it says error 105 please help

I can help you in resolving the error you have to connect your Absa Bank account successfully, @richard-skyecorp.


This error 105 means that your bank's website may be undergoing maintenance or have server issues. This hinders us from connecting to your online banking account. 


To resolve this, go to your bank's website and look for any messages, notifications, or alerts. This should tell you if something isn't working. You can also reach to their Customer Support and verify why you're having trouble adding it to QuickBooks Online (QBO). 


You can refer to this article for more information about error 105 and how to resolve it: Fix bank errors 102 and 105


In the meantime, you can add those bank transactions through the WebConnect process. You’ll have to manually download the transactions from the bank. Then, upload the file to your account.


Download bank transactions:


  1. Go to your online banking account to get your file.
  2. Check or follow your bank’s instructions to get a copy of the data and then save it on your computer.
  3. Ensure that the data range is at least one day before your oldest transaction to avoid duplicates.
  4. Please take note of the supported file format and size. It should be either a Comma-Separated Values (CSV) or a QuickBooks Online (QBO) file. 
  5. Download your transactions and save the file to your desktop. 


To upload the file to your QuickBooks account: 


  1. Go to the Banking menu and select the bank where you’re uploading the transactions from the Banking tab.
  2. Click the Lin account drop-down and select Upload from file
  3. On the window that appears, click the Browse button and choose the file that you’ll be downloading. 
  4. Click on Open, then Next.
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions. Match the columns on the file with the banking fields in QuickBooks, then select Next.
  6. Click on Let's go. QuickBooks will now add the transactions to your account.

From here, you can now categorise and match online bank transactions and then reconcile the transactions.
