Quicken Paypal problems :

PayPal frequently changes the file formats in a way that temporarily breaks connected applications like Quicken from behind. Although the export and import method should always work it’s not a perfect solution for this problem. That said, once you have got your PayPal account properly synced with Quicken, the account should remain in sync automatically. You will need to perform the export and import procedure if you are setting up an account for the first time and need the historical data or if the sync protocol between Quicken and PayPal is temporarily hampered. However, before the sync feature can be patched, you need to have the transactions available in Quicken.
