Don't know what you exactly want to do(I mean data = ??)... You can pass different values to parameters in the proc, and also get them overridden through your JOB,

//abc exec "your proc name",
// VariableA="new_value",
// ETC, ETC

You can pass values to a particular step(Hence overriding the existing values in the proc) by following mean:-

//abc exec "your proc name",
// VariableA="new_value",
// ETC, ETC

//stepnumber.datasetname DD DSN = "New Dataset Name"

Hope this is what you want, otherwise please provide more details on what exactly you want :-)

Hi shaikshavali,
You might have heard about symbolic parameters. You can pass datas to a procedure through symbolic parameters.
