How can I correct a prior reconciliation without redoing it?

I had a reconciliation that required hours of work and finally did an adjusting entry for $1,671 in ticket sales deposits. When I began working on the next month's reconciliation I found the actual deposits that were not cleared that almost match the adjusting entry. I want to manually clear those deposits in the check register and then change the adjusting entry to account for those deposits as they are entered in my sales receipts and I don't want to delete them as the information is important. I spent many hours on that reconciliation plus another 4 hours today on the current one. This seems to be the best way to proceed without having to do hours of work over again. I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions. Jackie
