I am getting the error message "IEC161I" with return code '056' which in tutorial is showing that an error in opening file because of a previous close failure. I would like to know if there is an IDCAMS function or other utility to close the files.Can it be done through FileAid?

Yes, VERIFY
Quote:
Programmer Response: If the error occurred at a time other than during IPL, use the access method services VERIFY command to make sure the end-of-file marker in the data set entry in the catalog is correct. Note that it is not valid to use VERIFY on a linear data set. If you ignore the warning and try to process the data set, the results are unpredictable. For example, you could cause lost records. If you use the VERIFY command, this message can appear when VERIFY processing opens the data set. If VERIFY processing then successfully closes the data set, it issues condition code 0.
