I am not aware of an SQL special register or a built-in function that would
give you a job date. Writing a UDF that does this would be very simple
though (CL or RPG), and you could reuse it elsewhere.

Subject: Retrieve JOB (not SYSTEM) date in SQL

I want to populate a date column in a table with the JOB DATE (not SYSTEM
DATE). This is because we run for prior days on the current day. I could
do this by using a variable in RPG on my INSERT stmt but would like to
avoid RPG and possibly do it using RUNSQLSTM. CURRENT DATE gives me the
system date. How could I get the JOB date to use in my INSERT stmt.
