Is there a Job card or job parm override the would override the system date for all programs in a particular job without affecting any other job?

Hi B,

No, there isn't an IBM feature to do that. There are 3rd pary solutions available at a price.

Many shops don't use the sys date for their processing. They use a "date file" that contains the processing date and other dates of interest to the organization (e.g. month end date, last GBD, last month end date, etc.). This file is maintained, usually out of the I/O Cntl group.
