Actually, this is more or less my personal finances, so it wouldn't have been a big deal to start again, but better not to, of course.

So a .xac file is a saved copy of the file that I call Accounts. The question then arises why Accounts just had my January data and not all of that. I assume that, if I save my Accounts file every time I close the program, then Accounts and the latest .xac file will be identical?
As I say, time for me to rtfm!
