Hello and welcome to the forum,

Learning CICS is too large an undertaking for a forum.

Suggest you spend some time with your cics system support person/group. They will have all of the info on how the tables on your system are configured and maintained.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

This is incredibly irresponsible on the part of your organization. This is not some Windows system that can be installed "out of the box".
We are having very stable system,approximate no issues.
That is no reason to have inadequate skills available to support the environment. Hopefully, nothing critical to the organization or a client is run on that system. . .

These are links to the CICS Language Reference and Programming Guide:

Hello,

in which library ( like proclibs are there) I can find CICS related information on system.
Those pieces of info will be site-specific. The various libraries are completely under local control - they could be named anything. Someone set everything up and hopefully, they documented what they were doing.

Please tell me how to proceed further
This would require a "real" cics system programmer. I'm not one. Your organization may need to enroll in a training program or hire someone to come in and do the research as well as bring you up to speed.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

No. . . There was no clarification posted. That doesn't describe any relationship between tables - just provides the name of 2 cics tables instead of the the TCA (three character abbreviation) :|
Hope this helps,
