Bob, Glad to see that you are again able to see the transactions. There is no single report that shows everything. I am guessing that you got lost in the process of trying to create a report. I would suggest that you experiment with the reports, perhaps first trying to do a balance report for today's date.
While there is a feature available called something like Year End, all it does is automatically zero out all the income and expense accounts by transferring them all to Equity. A lot of us don't bother with it as it is not required for accurate reports anyway. Then all your history is still there. There is discussion in this list from time to time about the relative merits of the various ways to handle year end.
