Ah...something I know about.  Jim, look at the task you wish to submit. 
There will be an interactive program (the screen) and hopefully a batch
program.  

If this is the case then when you enter the schedule number (add a new
scheduled task) you may press F24 to call a task which has been previously
created.  By pressing F24 you will receive the interactive screen were you
may fill in any parameters that you desi9re.  The value you select are
stored wi9th the scheduled task and when the job runs through the scheduler
these parameters will be used.  The draw back to this is that I have not
found a way to use dates.  The date seems to be static and the task must be
scheduled separately for each new date.

The second case (remember JBA's consistency) is to submit the job directly
for the interactive program.  I think Pick notes (Style - 12/STOEB, Base -
12/OEB) may be a case of this.  The task will not have a batch job.  This
type of task can not be scheduled without modification.  What is required
is that the program be split into an interactive program (the screen) and a
batch job.  The screen must set L#RTCD to ' Y' (blank Y) before ending. 
This will cause the batch job (a new task must have been created) to run. 
This new task can be scheduled.

Phew....so many words, so little time...

If you have any problems feel free to ask.
