All you can pass from a program to the JCL is a numeric value in the Return-Code register (0-4096).

You can write your information to a dataset. However, that is of no value to the JCL.

My question is - why would your JCL need to care about the system date?

RETURN-CODE is a built in variable in COBOL. You can access the value of RETURN-CODE variable in jcl using JCL var RC.
