Do you mean "I have some data that didn't get put in and I'd like to 
add it" or "I have missing data and somehow want it to magically 
appear from nowhere" ?

For the former, you have to export the database, edit the resulting 
file, then re-import it. rrd databases do not have the ability to go 
back and put stuff in prior to the last update time.

As for the latter, well you can export your data, make some numbers 
up, then re-import it - but what does that get you ?
