Automatically setting task alarm date

I am automating the creation of a todo/task entry in a Lotus Notes calendar but cannot enable the notify parameter and set the alarm date. This is being done from within Visual Basic. Can you provide any help?
The values for these settings are stored in fields that start with $Alarm. What I would do is create a task entry in the Notes client without any notification settings and note all the field values for $Alarm fields. Then configure the notification on the task to settings that you want and note the values for the $Alarm fields. Then, from VB, populate the $Alarm fields like any other field in the document.
