not saving changes

Hi Eric,

In some rare cases it's possible for the default date in the new
transaction field to get messed up, and the user expects the date to be a
particular value like today, but it's not.  When the user saves and
re-opens the file, the user thinks the transaction wasn't saved because
they couldn't find the transaction where they expected it to be.  Maybe try
using find function to see if the transaction may actually be getting
saved, but it's just not where you expect it to be?  Just a thought.

Kind regards,

Greg Feneis
