Virtual System Date

This feature is available in NLS 4.9.3 and later.


This feature is only available to users with admin privileges.

Admin users and users with the DBA flag selected can set a virtual system date for testing cycles that may require time travel operations.

To access this feature, select File > Virtual System Date.

Click Set Virtual System Date then either enter the new date to use or select a new date from the popup calendar. NLS will now use the virtual date as the current date and base all of its calculations and functions on this date.

To return to using the actual system date, click Stop Virtual System Date or close the Virtual System Date dialog.
