    The simulator actually does not store data at all, just algorithms for generating sample time series data. Time series data is what you would retrieve from a historian or OPC data source.

    Each time you run a Tag Query and retrieve data from the Simulator you get a freshly generated data set according to the algorithm. This can be somewhat limiting since you will not have a static "history".

    If you can find an tag in Simulator which is similar to your data or expectations you can create a new Simulator datasource with your own tags. This can be done at Data Services -> Simulator Editor in version 12.0 and above. Here is the link to the help to do so []
