Setup (for Sync Import):



A. Confirm Your Username & Password


The following configuration is required on the Schwab to enable download to TAPro.


  • TAPro uses the same Username as your web login. 

  • TAPro uses the same Password/PIN as your web login.

  • If your credentials don't work, call Schwab at 800-435-4000 to request a user ID and password that will enable Schwab account information downloads.

  • If you have already have a user ID and password, call 888-327-7778 with questions.


B. To Change Your Username or Password


  • Log into your account.

  • Navigate to "At a Glance / My Profile"




  • Scroll down to the Access and Account List

  • Choose one of the "change" hyperlinks"



  • When creating a new User ID or Password keep the following in mind.

When creating a Login/ID or Password/PIN follow the character limit rules.  Otherwise, without warning, the process will truncate characters that exceed the limit causing you to think a longer definition was accepted when actually extra characters were truncated.  This can result in an "Username/Password Error" during the TAPro sync process.  For example, if you entered a 9 character Password, the Schwab system accepts only 8 characters, you then enter 9 characters into TAPro and those 9 characters fail to match the actual 8 characters retained on the Schwab site.
