It seemed I typed too quick.  I forgot since it's a S36 PRC it's
actually doing a // JOBQ someprog,somelib.

I'm on V3R7M0.  Yes, when I do a // DATE or a DATE the session
date is changed.  But, when a // JOBQ batch job is ran, and I display
the batch job, the session date on the batch job is back to the current
system date.

I do not understand how our programs could of worked before this
way, since they are using UDATE which, as I understand it, grabs
the session date.  So before, in my understanding, it had to grab
the changed session date before, but now it doesn't.  There are a lot
of // JOBQ commands in our system, and I am not happy about
having to go about and change every one of them.

I am probably going to have to find the command syntax for the
// JOBQ command and find out what parameter I need to pass
to it to accept the current session date as the job's session date.

I just don't understand why I would have to change this.  It worked
last Thursday fine.  Today, it doesn't work.  Unless there is something
I am overlooking, but I couldn't image what it could be.
