Hi there, @xb3r.
Thanks for sharing your concern in the QuickBooks Community page. Let's fix the error message so you can back to your business.
Bank error 102 usually means there may be a problem from your bank's end. Their website may be undergoing maintenance or have server issues. This can stop the online bank connection to QuickBooks. Here's what to do to resolve the error.
Firstly, perform a manual update to refresh your bank connection in QuickBooks. Let me show you how:
If you still see an error, check the bank and credit card's website to make sure everything is working on their end.
To know more about the process above and all other recommended troubleshooting steps, you can check out this article: What to do if you get a bank error or can't download transactions in QuickBooks Online.
Once your transactions are downloaded, you'll have to review and/or match them to the existing entries in QuickBooks. This way, you can keep your account updated. Please refer to this article for the step-by-step guide: Categorise online bank transactions in QuickBooks Online.
I'd be pleased to listen if you have other problems with your account, @xb3r. Have a great weekend.
Thank you for your reply.
I tried all possible solutions to fix the issue but still failed to solve it.
The bank website is working perfectly fine and no maintenance is going on the bank's side.
It seems an issue with the Quickbook's end. Can you please advise the emergency way to resolve this matter? How I can contact Quickbook under emergency circumstances.
Appreciate you for getting back to us and trying to check any maintenance going on the bank's side, xb3r.
Since everything works well on the bank's side, I'd like to ask for the name of your financial intuition (bank). This helps me check if there's an going issue with our end. Please reply below.
In the meantime, you can manually upload the bank transactions using the CSV file to continue bringing them to QuickBooks. You'll have to download transactions from your bank by logging in to your bank's website. Then, follow the given instructions on how to download transactions and save the file on your desktop or anywhere you can easily find it.
Once done, upload them to your book by following these steps:

Thank you for your feedback.
Our bank institution is First National Bank.
I don't like adding transactions manually in fear of having duplications. Rather, I ll prefer to wait to resolve this issue as soon as possible because on a daily basis, we having too many transactions so It will be hectic for me.
Please try to get it resolved for me as soon as possible if possible, please.
I appreciate getting back to us with the bank's name. The last thing we could have are duplicates and we want to prevent that as much as possible.
Since adding transaction isn't an option for you, we would want to have our support agent investigate First National Bank's connection in QuickBooks.
The support agents will use their tools to fix the recurring error code 102 and ensure we'll be able to download your transactions. Here's how to reach them:
After fixing the error code, download the transactions again and categorise them into your books.
When all transactions are accounted for, we can run reports to see how the business is doing so far. Check out this article if you need help utilising the Reports feature: Run reports in QuickBooks Online.
Should you have any other concerns regarding your bank transactions, let me know and I'll lay down some guides. If you happen to come across any obstacles while recording your entries, running reports, or managing your data, add the details to your reply and I'll see what I can do for you.
Hoping to see you again here.
Thank you for your feedback.
I tried contacting the help but it shows that it will only available on monday 8 am GMT 2+
This is very disappointing to know that no emergency support is provided by quickbooks.
This was very urgent and needed to be sort out today but no support by quickbooks on weekends which is very awkward and ridiculous in this age and era.
Anyways. We ll contact them tomorrow morning and once its sort out, we ll look forward to move on to some other reliable cloud accounting with 24/7 emergency support atleast.
I hear you, @avdwest.
I want to ensure this matter is addressed timely by sharing updates so you can get your latest transactions from First National bank.
As of this time, the investigation with regards to the connection error of your bank account in QuickBooks Online has been investigated. However, we're unable to provide the exact turnaround time for a resolution. Rest assured, our banking, together with our engineering team is in all hands working to fix this as soon as possible.
Please know that all updates will be sent via the email address you've entered on file saying you haven't heard of any solutions from our team online. For now, let's consider manually uploading your transactions as the workaround.
You can do so by following the instructions shared by my colleague, @SarahannC, for reference. I'm also including this article to avoid issues in uploading your transactions: Fix Issues while Importing Bank Transactions using CSV File Format.
Now you're able to upload and get the list of your latest transactions. And here is the reference you can use to review and put them into the correct accounts in QBO: Categorise and Match Online Bank Transactions in QuickBooks Online.
We appreciate your patience as we're working on this. Don't forget to tag my name, @JonpriL, if you've got other concerns about online banking and uploading transactions in QuickBooks. Take care and stay safe, @avdwest!
Thank you for the response @JonpriL
We would like to avoid doing a manual upload as we may get duplicate transactions doing it this way.
We would prefer the issue to be resolved as soon as possible so we can download the transactions.
I understand you don't know what the turnaround time for the solution will be, but I don't think it is unreasonable for us to expect it to be resolved by now since it has been 7 business days of it not working. This has caused a great disruption in our business.
