Ctrl-Z is usually used to suspend the current job. In this case you may have suspended the creation of the at job. Probably not desirable.

Did you get a message telling you that you had stopped or suspended your job?

I suspect that what you should have done is exited using Ctrl-D

Another alternative is to check whether you have permissions to execute at commands. Take a look at the at man page for information on which files define permissions.

Regards, Andrew
