Are you sure you are re-opening the same file that you save to?  How are
you opening gnucash and what version of GC and which operating system are
you using?
Is it just one specific transaction that it will not (apparently) save or
does nothing save?

There will be no need to start again.  Whatever the problem is you will be
able to recover your existing data.  It is still there because you are able
to see it (except the changes) when you restart.
