Question "man date" command does not work

Hi there

I'm logged in as root on a UNIX Spark 10 using a SSH client.

I notice that the time on the machine is wrong and I type "man date" in order to receive the options how to change this.

When typing "man date" and hitting Enter I get the message "No manual entry for date"

Why? Am I doing something wrong? In need of assistance!
