How do Test Data and Keyword work together (at TCER)?

Can someone help me understand how Test Data and Keywords should work together?

Given a scenario where a Test Script steps are
Keyword 1 - associated to Test Data A
Step
Keyword 2 - associated to Test Data B

Sometimes when the Execution Record is generated the data columns are correctly replaced by the data variables.
At others, however, the Execution Record is generated with the data column names (not values).
I still couldn't figure out why it works at times and doesn't at others.

I thought maybe I should associated the Data then at the "end" Script, but as I can only associate 1 TS - 1 TD, it doesn't allow for the scenario I described above.

(By the way, this is on RQM 5.0.2)

I found this help reference that tells me I cannot have the scenario described above, with two different Test Data sets referenced.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSR27Q_5.0.2/com.ibm.rational.test.qm.doc/topics/c_data_into_kw.html

Am I approaching this the wrong way? Or does this architecture really cripples the extent to which Keywords and Test Data can be used together?

Parent script and the keyword script should use the same test data
