Can't manually import .qbo bank transactions file

I'm trying to maintain my business's account balance and transaction history in quickbooks by manually importing the .qbo file. I successfully imported my transactions as a .qbo file from bank of america a few months ago. So when I go to "Downloaded Transactions", I see them all, and the account dropdown at the top says "Bank of America". Great...

But now I'm trying to update these transactions by importing another .qbo file containing all transactions since the last import. I click "import file" and select the file. Then it asks me to select which account to import into.

The problem is the "Store in the quickbooks account" dropdown is empty. The only option in the dropdown is "new...". There should be an option to select the existing bank of america account which I've already imported transactions into. 

Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
