Brad,
If you need to get the date in a consistent format, the best way to deal with
the date part of a numeric TIME result is to movel it to a date field using
*JOBRUN as the format.  Use the 12-digit form of TIME for this, since the job
date format refers to a 6-digit date.  If you do this, be sure to use MOVEL
since using MOVE with a Julian job format would produce incorrect results.

D           ds
d  t12            12s 0
d    td            6s 0   overlay(t12:7)
d  date     s       d     datfmt(*iso)
d  ddmmyyyy s      8s 0

 * Get date in job date format
C            time           t12
 * Convert to "real" date field
C   *jobrun  movel  td      date
 * Convert to numeric field in ddmmyyyy format
C   *EUR     movel  date    ddmmyyyy

I think it's V4R2 where you can put a date field directly in the result field of
TIME.
