If you are authorized to use CICS System Programming commands, you may try EXEC CICS CREATE FILE from within cobol.

If you want to run this COBOL program from batch, you have to use some kind of connection like EXCI.

EXCI is a method to run a CICS program outside of CICS address space (like batch or MVS). You may read more about it in the fine manual.

Also, you can use Google to find lots of examples.

There is new software product from HostBridge Technology that allows you to write Batch Cobol programs that can access and communicate with any CICS resource;; files, tdq's, tsq's, programs, transactions.

Basically, you could write your own COBOL Batch program to update the file without closing the file in the CICS region OR write code to communicate with an existing online CICS transaction and feed updates to it.
