Just wrap the command in \AtBeginDocument{}.  Then it works as you
want. For this kind of thing it might also make sense to make a
package instead of just using \input (but you'd still use
\AtBeginDocument in the package anyway.  -Alan

%%% ddt.tex %%%
\AtBeginDocument{%
\newbox\scbox \setbox\scbox=\hbox{{\textsc{AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA}}}
}
