Goof-Accidently put Oil in Transmission Fluid

I was putting oil in my bmw for the first time where it said "CHF11S Oil Only". Unfortunately, I believe that is where transmission fluid goes. My dealer said don't start the car and they would come out on Monday. I used a turkey baster to get the mixture out. Is this going to be a big problem? What should I be concerned about?

I believe that is the power steering reservoir. How much engine oil did you add? What year/model? As long as you didn't ciculate it (run the engine), and you suck it all out and add fresh hydraulic oil (Pentosin CHF 11S) you should be all set.
