It's what is known as a Ghost WU, The servers think you have it but your don't.
It is possible to recover the WU, but it involves a whole lot of mucking around. If it were a few hundred WUs i probably try to recover them, but for just one, i personally wouldn't bother.
When the reporting date for the WU comes & goes, it will be resent to another system, and come up as an error on yours as "Not reported by deadline".

Look this thread.

There are instructions for recovering if you wish to try.

But see the previous msg from Grant first.
