Jim you can put the job date on the DATE parameter on the SBMJOB command
itself. Then the job will run with the job date specified. The problem you
are having is that the Date parameter's IBM default is to take the job date
from  *JOBD which probably points to *SYSVAL which is today's date as does
QBATCH'S JOBD as an IBM default on V4R4 I'm not sure if it was like that on
previous releases .
