there is no need to do this.

this can also be written as:
/dev/vg00/ftp_data /data xfs  usrquota  1 2

'defaults' is implicit and is just a placeholder in that field.

then try this:

mount -o remount /data
which will change the mount options on /data to match /etc/fstab.

fine

edquota username
is enough.
to do this non-interactively, you could use:
setquota -u <username> block_soft block_hard inode_soft inode_hard /data
e.g.
setquota -u bob 5120 5500 0 0 /data
