You can't pass positional parameters to BTEQ (the way you can with SQL*Plus, if you've been working with Oracle).
In Windows, as Victor said, you'd have to do all substitutions in test.txt before running it. You could probably create a batch file to automate that, though. I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard with Power Shell, either.
In Unix, you can use environment variables by wrapping the BTEQ script in a shell script and using input redirection.
test.sh 10 True
Where a bare-bones (and silly) test.sh looks like
bteq << EOF .logon db/name,password; .export file /where/your/output/should/go.txt Select tablename, ''$2'' from dbc.tables qualify row_number() over (order by tablename) < $1; .exit EOF
