Sounds like you have a tab which is auto-opening (or a scheduled transaction 
auto-running), which shows an account that you have designated as a 
placeholder-only account (ie you can't add transactions to it).

If you can identify the account in question, go to the account-tree view, 
select the account and hit "Edit" in the tool bar, or right-click on the 
account and chose "edit account", the placeholder check-box is on that 
dialogue box.

Or close the tab, or amend the SX to use a different account!
