hi ,
i have requirement such all my cobol pgm names are present in a ksds vsam file and my cobol pgm should read file sequentially and send a
new copy command to cics , such that my online pgm will be new copied.
why i am using ksds vsam file , the reason is the file will be allocated to cics . so cics can read only vsam files.

This is not the case. CICS can process non-VSAM files, for example PS.

Do you have to issue the NEWCOPY commands from within CICS? A suitably authorised batch program could issue CEMT commands to the CICS region.

Your program names are available in the (VSAM) DFHCSD dataset groups, duplicating them in another file adds an unnecessary complexity.

Have you researched the ways that commands can be issued?

Regards,
Garry.

There is a vendor product that would resolve this :
