Best way of dealing with duplicate acctount types

I have two account types which are identical except that the code for the one is "income" and the other one is "Income". My assumption is that a module created the duplicate. I only noticed this today, and my bookkeeper has already used both interchangeably without informing me of the problem.

Is there a way of either merging the two types into a single type, or deleting the one type and forcing all invalid references to the other type? If not, how would I go about forcing the bookkeeper to use only one?

There are 2 ways: 1. Choose either of them to use Always, and replace all occurrences of the other one by it. For example,if you choose 'Income', go and replace accounts with type='income' to be 'Income'. And disable/remove the unused one. 2. The first way will let your end user know that some type is replaced/Now only one type is available. The other way we suggest is, do a code so that user is able to see both, but when in operations either is used.

By the way, where has your accountant/bookkeper used the account types?

It was an invoice that was captured with the wrong account type. I actually forgot you can change which accounts use which account types. Thanks, your answer worked perfectly.
