Can you use the system programming commands of CICS at your shop? If not, the answer is you cannot do this. If so, check out the CICS System Programming Reference for your release of CICS.

CREATE FILE is the CICS system programming command that is used to create an FCT through a program. Your CICS systems support person has standards regarding group and list names, FCT names, and so forth -- so creating one dynamically (if you have the ability to use the CREATE FILE command -- it's not normally available to applications programmers) may cause you friction with your system support staff.

Before even attempting to use this command, you need to talk to your systems support people because using this command may be seen as attempting to avoid system security, which is generally regarded as extremely serious.

Dick -- or worse ... sites with tight security might decide using this command is reason for an escorted departure.
