[GNC] Transactions imported from the file assigned to wrong account

Which file format are you importing?  The UI and procedure are slightly 
different for each one. I am most familiar with OFX file import, and 
secondarily with CSV file import.

At the beginning of the import process, there is a step when GnuCash has 
you designate which GnuCash account should receive the transactions you 
are importing. For OFX format files, GnuCash can then remember a 
correspondence between the account number in the OFX file and the 
GnuCash account which receives the transaction, and it doesn't need to 
ask you the next time that you import.

Have you read through the GnuCash Guide documentation about file import?

Best regards,
