Hi Palani,
Thanks a lot for the interest to resolve.
I have a client requirement that they used very old oracle application in windows xp machine.
So, in that application one drop down is there to change the date as current date of the month. or we can say the last date of the current month.
That process is a month end process.

Yes, you can use Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace to change the system date and time. Note that you need local admin access to perform the action though.

In an assign activity, on the left side put in Microsoft.VisualBasic.TimeOfDay and on the right side put in the datetime variable you’d like to change it to. For example Assign Microsoft.VisualBasic.TimeOfDay = Now.AddHours(-1) would move the clock back one hour from the current time
