I should have mentioned that having transposed to the wrong key, you can
always make a further transposition to correct your error. In the case
you mention here, you need to transpose upwards by a diminished second
(the code is d2 for the "Arbitrary transpose up" command).

(In case you are struggling to analyse that, it is a second because you
are taking G-sharp to A-flat so counting the note steps starting at 1
you get 1 for G and 2 for A, so it's a second - you always have to start
counting a 1 so that g-g is a unison, and g-g' is an 8 or octave. Then
for the quality of the interval, a major second is a tone, a minor
second is a semitone, so this is a diminished second, being one semitone
smaller than that).

Please don't be insulted if you knew all that!
