Cannot record transfer. You do not have a position in the destination account.

I am trying to enter balances into Quicken 2019 Deluxe from a previous version that stopped downloading properly mid year. I have entered zero entries that are supposed to be the same thing as a journal entry many times before. I chose the checking account to enter the balances in, the offset line to zero the transaction is to category "Opening Balance". I get the message "Cannot record transfer. You do not have a position in the destination account.". I've never seen this message before in any version of Q and I've been using Q since 1994. I don't know why it thinks it's a transfer. Anyone know how to get around this?

    Thanks, Sherlock. I had set up an investment account that no entries had been entered into yet. When I changed that account, I was able to save with no problem.
