Change Date and Time

What is the script to change the date and time in VBS? I need this for my programming finals, however we never learned it.

RE: Change Date and Time

Seems odd that a programming finals might involve changing the system time and date. Even odder that you might want to try it in VBS, since VBS has no native capability to do this. One method (out of several) might be to shell out to the command line, ands run the date and/or time commands. eg

CODE -->

strCommand = "cmd.exe /c time 23:02:00"
set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
intRC = objWshShell.Run(strCommand, 0, TRUE) 

RE: Change Date and Time

Yeah it is odd. Thank you, though.
