Vishwa,

Why not to put a meaningful title, which is self explainatory.

There is no difference as such while creating temp dataset. However in case specified with a single "&" and there is a symbolic parameter defined with the same name, it may confuse the processing and produce a permanent dataset instead.

So better to go with "&&".
