Sorry!!!  I meant turning forward and then turning back... so either set
of issues is highly relevant to me.  Thank you for catching that.

Oops, you said "turning back."  I was thinking of setting it ahead.  I
think
that things that set flags on the basis of system date may undergo some
reversible-only-with-a-great-deal-of-work changes that you won't want to
deal with. Scheduled jobs could be interesting regardless of which
direction
you move the date.

sorry

Subject: Turning back QDATE


We have just been notified that we need to test some software one of our
Texas divisions is using to run their business.  The creator of this
software will not send us a copy to load on a test box.  We have been
instructed to test it over a weekend (or series of weekends) by turning
back the date on the Production AS/400 over in Texas.  I have heard
through this list such a thing is a very, very not good idea.  Now I I
need some firm reasons or I will find myself participating in this very
thing.  ANY help is GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks!!!
