Just Wondering if Corrected Mistake Adversely Affects Score

After pulling my annual credit report, I noticed bank reported my final  car payment as 60 days late way back in March.  Apparently, I still had $16 due & wasn't sent an invoice, however the bank quickly corrected this to 'never late' after I contacted them.  My question is - even though this mistake was corrected 3 months later, does it still adversely effect my FICO score?  In otherwords, does score automatically go up to what the score would have been?  Or are a few points or more knocked off because the odds of having a dispute Anyway -  in the eyes of the FICO calculator -  might possibly indicate I could be (slightly) at fault?  I didn't check the score prior to mistake so I'm not sure if the bank caused my score to go down some or not.  Thanks.

Welcome.. assuming it's no longer reporting it's the same as never being there. :smileyhappy:
