Display flats not sharps

If I transpose the key from C down one step it appears as A#, can I change that to appear as Bb

Change the accidentals by using the key signature of Bb.

EDIT: Please tell me you know it's in minor or major.

If you are using Finale, use the key signature tool to impose a new key on the first measure of your transposition. Obviously, put Bb. Then, the program should enharmonically respell the notes to correspond to the new key.
