In your do-files, you can use macros `1' `2' etc:

do mycoolfile data1

and then in your mycoolfile.do you can say something like

log using `1', replace
use `1', clear
blah-blah-blah
exit

I think this should be explained in more details in either [P] or [U],
and I am pretty sure I learned that in one of NetCourses some 8 years
ago :))
