Microsoft money reporting fails to pick up transactions. Transactions by Category shows zero balances

Running Microsoft Money on XP Pro with 7 years worth of data successfully imported from my old  Quicken 2004 package. Couple of days ago was using Reports in Advanced mode and selected Transactions by Category which has always worked fine before but this time I got a report with no transactions and zero balances. Checked dates selected and it made no difference using any of the settings. Checked selected category and found that most categories showed the same faulty reporting. One or two categories however were reporting OK. I have saved some favorite reports using this one as a base and these still run as intended and I can use the control windows to change the parameters and they then pick up the data that the main report will not. So it is not a data issue - its the report that appears to malfunction. I have run a repair on the data which reported all was OK. I have original disk - and feel I should simply reinstall the program but can anyone suggest a way to repair the report or identify why this system report is suddently malfunctioning. What am I missing?

Solution has been found without requirement to reinstall program. All report parameters were checked against a working example and no difference found to explain the reporting of zero transactions. However, under tabs for Classification and Properties the de-selection and then re-selection of ALL achieved the required result, unblocking whatever had been preventing the reports from running. No real understanding of why -but what the heck it works now.

Some automated zombie has been urging me to better manage my open questions. This question received no response and I have resolved it. So could some moderator please stop bugging me for more input? Many thanks and have a great 2008 everyone.

I guess you can delete the thread???
Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Thanks za mkh: - I note there is a button at the head allowing deletion of the question and I guess this would be a way. But maybe the solution I found might be useful to somebody so accepting your suggestion as the solution will possibly allow this thing to be put to rest while still providing some tiny addition to the common knowledge of mankind. Have a good day.

No. Apparently I have accepted my solution as the accepted solution and therefore cannot accept another suggestion as a solution. Yet I keep being advised by the automated program that the question is "open". So I guess I'll just sit quiet for a coupla weeks and if it comes back again like Hamlets ghost I'll delete the question. Can't wait to get the message "You cannot delete this question because it has an accepted solution..... "
