I somehow had un-reconciled a transaction I had entered three months ago 
- well out of my "sight range" when reconciling.   Thanks to the forum 
for clarifying how GnuCash works:  it's reall quite simple and 
forthright once I get over my fears.

Thanks too for the clarification on the filenames.    I did finally find 
this year's files in the data file directory.   For some reason, the 
previous two years had been  dumped into my /Home directory.
