Capital letters in the option names of -syntax- are there to indicate
the minimal abbreviation. When you later on call your program you
should not use capital letters. So:

dd, startdate("2011-01-01") enddate("2011-01-20") brokerod(6429)
graphttype("pie")

or:
dd, start("2011-01-01") end("2011-01-20") broker(6429) grapht("pie")
