Replacing TAG field during Find/Replace inflates account balances

I'm on Desktop Windows, using Quicken Deluxe 2020, version R31.12, build
Is anyone else having issues with Find/Replace? I have been spending several hours cleaning up past register entries.
I find that I can Find then Replace many fields (Payee, Memo, Check Number) with no adverse affects. But when I replace (519 entries in this example) into the (existing) TAG field, my account balances (plural, also in unaffected accounts) get new highly inflated Balances.
For example, the correct current balance in our Joint Checking is $3,478.91. After I Replace the TAG field (in ANY account in my database), all balances go up almost 200x. Joint Checking after TAG Replacement then shows $684,172.71 on the home screen, and Register Transaction balances are inflated as though there's a multiplier involved (i.e. $20 deposit, balance column goes up ~$4,000.
Thank goodness I create a Backup before beginning any Find/Replace function.
Any ideas?

    Well I tried swapping one tag for another and didn't see any change in my balances.
    I suggest you try running Validate & Repair.
