Automatic Closing Entry Posted to Wrong Equity Account in QuickBooks
The easiest way to fix your problem is to change the name of this account (if you use the same exact name as your other equity account, it will merge the two accounts). This will solve the problem for the past and future.
The only other option is to manually fix it using Make General Journal Entries (under Company). DR the incorrect equity account and CR the correct one. You'll need to prepare one for each year in the past and the future, and your balance sheet reports will look a little strange on the last day of the year.
