Fixing an ancient un-reconciled transation

I have an old transaction [from 2012] that obviously has cleared. Is there a clean/easy way to get it marked "Reconciled"? I *think* that if I just change its status to 'reconciled' that'll throw off Quicken's running balance total. I suppose the only problem with that it that'll it'll generate a compensating "balance adjustment" the next time I reconcile, which is no big deal [especially if I date the balance adjustment for the same date as the orphaned transaction...:o)]

If you manually mark the old transaction reconciled, that will change the opening balance of the next reconcile.
But that should not require any balance adjustment as long as the ending balance of the next reconcile is correct.
