How can I finish a bank reconciliation when there are outstanding checks?

I checked all the checks/deposits that have cleared the bank.  There is one outstanding check and when I click "finish", the system wants to make an adjusting entry.  No, it's just an outstanding check that will most likely clear the next month.  So, do I just have to 'leave' instead and reconcile when the check clears?  And what if it takes several months to clear?  Your guidance, please.  Thanks in advance!
