Upgrade from El Capitan to Sierra lost all amounts in savings account

At start: Running Quicken Essentials on a Mac Pro laptop running El Capitan.

I downloaded the free trial version MD earlier this week (onto El Capitan), started MD, and migrated from QuickenEssentials. I had two bank accounts in Quicken Essentials, a checking and a savings account. After the migration, everything seemed ok (i.e., correct amounts in both the checking and savings accounts), except for one minor item: In the left-hand sidebar, the Bank category only showed the savings account, although both showed the in summary.

Today, I upgraded the MacOS from El Capitan to Sierra. After the upgrade, I started MD ok. However, now:
* No transactions show in the savings account at all, and the balance = 0.00,
* The checking account lists a correct balance, but there are no transactions shown.
* Both the checking and savings accounts are listed under Bank in the left-hand sidebar.

How do I fix this? I can imagine trashing the current datafile, and doing the migration again (I assume that MD is directly reading the QE datafile, so that it can do that again when running now under Sierra). Should I, or is there something better?
Thanks in advance,

    Ignore this. I had been experimenting with creating an additional datafile for family members, and totally confused myself.
