Time to change the time on the AS/400

I'm new to the AS/400 and have a 720 based at our office. I need to know how to change the systems time, as it has not updated automatically.

Go to any command line and execute the command WRKSYSVAL. These are the system values for your AS/400. Position to the value QTIME--you can display the time by placing a "5" in front of QTIME, or "2" to change it. If you have any problems, press F1 for help from any AS/400 command.
