Single Mutual Fund account transaction wiped out whenever I edit it (Q2007)

I have Quicken 2007 and am trying to added two Single Mutual Fund accounts to it for two new Blackrock accounts that I have recently opened. I already have two American Fund accounts and they download
their transactions automatically when I run an update. Blackrock, however, does not support this (jerks), so I have to enter transactions manually. I created a new account of type Single Mutual Fund, gave it one security name, and entered the transaction from my opening statement, telling it to transfer the cash from my checking account. No problem - the balance of the new fund account went up, my checking account went down, things appears to be working.
Then I noticed in the register of my checking account that there was no "TXFR" under the "Num" column, even though this was a transfer between accounts. So I updated it and - poof - the balance of my fund account drops to 0, even though the balance of my checking account correctly reflects that cash was transferred out. So I went through the whole thing again, deleting the account and creating it, and then entered text into the notes fields of the transaction "Do not update Num column." Poof - the balance of my fund account drops to 0. Any change I make to the linked transaction causes the problem. When I look in the mutual fund account, I still see the transaction there (including the note text that I added from the checking account) but the quantity of shares and cost per share are zero'd out.
What on earth am I doing wrong? I can live with the empty "Num" column, but I cannot live with a situation that causes transactions to get wiped out without notice. Someday I will accidentally type in the notes field and I do not want to loose the transaction!

I tried to duplicate this in Q2007 Premier R4, but was not able to do so.
If you're not required by the fi (for downloading purposes) to have single mutual fund accounts, I can't think of any good reason to use them.
You could try Validating a Quicken Copy of your data; if the Validated Copy doesn't exhibit the nasty behavior, make that your regular data.

John,
There nust have been something funky in the data files. I ran the validate as you suggested and the problem seems fixed. I will keep my eye on it for a while just to make sure, but I think I am all set now. Thanks for the assist.
