We use symbolic parameters in the Procrdures to overide the data set!!!

Actually, just the opposite. Usually symbolic parameters are used in the procedure to eliminate the need to use overrides.

One circumstance might be a cyclical billing application. Each day, the billing cycle is run and the billing files are created and stored in generation data group (GDG) datasets. The contents of the GDG's are sent to various insurance carriers for payment. After a week, one of the insurance carriers states that they did not process a billing file for a specific day, so that day's billing file needs to be re-sent. Once the proper GDG is identified, an override is done to use that data for the billing cycle.
