Tech error computer entry of mileage way off

I have a 2006 SLK350 with 35,250 miles. I took my car in for service (Mercedes dealership), the technician entered mileage of 199,568 into the dealerships computer system. They don't know how to fix it. Because the Carfax and all future service calls will be affected I really want this fixed.
Any help is appreciated.

They can fix it. I had it happen to our ML. They added 100k miles with a typo on keyboard. I noticed it when I saw the repair order when I picked up the car.
They voided out that repair order and generated one with the correct odometer reading and the warranty work done and I was out the door only losing ten minutes.

If they really are not able to do what my dealer did then as mentioned time to get MBUSA and the regional service manager for that region involved. They will fix it.
