The quicken file contains no budgetable accounts or categories problem - AGAIN

On Windows 10 Home, running Quicken version R32.12, build 27.1.32.12

On selecting the Planning tab to try building a budget (again), I get the "... file contains no budgetable accounts...." error message.

To resolve, I've copied my Quicken data file, opened the new copy, run a file validation. Same problem with the planning tab.

Went back to my original data file, copied it again (new name); then run a SUPER validation on this new data file copy. I was able to access the Planning tab. Great!

So, I created a first pass simple budget to test using this tool. Then I closed this data file copy.

Re-opened my original file, planning tab failed as I expected.

Went back to my data file copy - the one where after super validating I was able to use the planning / budget tool - and now I GET THE "... FILE CONTAINS NO BUDGETABLE ACCOUNTS...." ERROR - IN THE FILE WHERE JUST FIVE MINUTES AGO I SUCCESSFULLY CREATED A TEST BUDGET.

How do I resolve this so I can use the budget tool?? Any ideas?
