Automate downloading report from AS400?

My new job uses AS400 for certain reports and I am new to it. Im not too familiar with these old IBM systems. I am using Telnet 5250 with it.

What I want to do is schedule a report to download to a folder every day similar to how you can with SSRS subscriptions (which is what Im familiar with). This report will require dynamic parameters, the date ranges will shift every time. What is the best way to do this?

Side note – Ive been researching AS400 and have noticed that the “main menu” (the one with user tasks, office tasks, system tasks, etc) is not what I see when I login. When I login I see a premade menu specifically about company inquiries, reports, etc. Im wondering if this is because of my permissions? Is there a command I can run that tells me my permissions or what menus I have access to?
