the only way to do that is dynamic sql
@start_date datetime , 
@end_date datetime

DECLARE @sql nvarchar(4000)

set @sql = '
Select * 
into [Step_1' + convert(varchar(10), @start_date, 120) + '] FROM
     (SELECT * from Data_Table
   WHERE LoadDate BETWEEN @v_start_date AND @v_end_date)A '
exec sp_executesql @sql, N'@v_start_date datetime, @v_end_date datetime, @start_date, @end_date
