Override CURRENTDATETIME value by run parameter

Our team wants to build automatic regression tests for continous integration and simplifying release changes. Also the tests would be repeatable.

The outputs in between two runs are different if the output contains an CURRENTDATETIME function.

We need a RUN parameter to override the CURRENTDATETIME value with a fix value.

    This is common in QA running on sample data.  Masking the data will resolve

    This is a pretty disappointing answer, Luke. Masking the data at diff time is a big issue due to the various file formats. You need sophisticated tools for that and can't use Unix's diff. Fixing this issue in ITX by providing similar timestamps would be so much easier.
