Hello,

Typically, this is not done by beginners/developers.

You need to talk with your cics support to learn what must be provided for use on your system. If this is for class, you need direction from your instructor.
Hope this helps,

If you only have a Trainer, then you have to accept some things.

VSAM files can of course be defined to CICS. You don't actually need to now how that happens to be able to use them. It works. If you are really keen on your own research, try an internet search for "define VSAM file to CICS" or similar. It won't solve any problems for you, but you will know how to do it (from a manual/instructions) without being able to do it yourself.

To use a VSAM file in a CICS Cobol program, you have manuals/books plus your teaching material. You won't have to OPEN or CLOSE the file, and all file accesses will be through EXEC CICS... commands, which will be translated into CALLS to specific CICS routines by the CICS pre-processor.

If you don't have any, find yourself some example CICS Cobol programs. Usual places.

Hello,

My instructor could not explain me.
Someone who supports the training has to know this. . . Might not be the "trainer" but someone has to know or there would be no vsam files n use. . .

Does each student create new files for their project(s) or are existing files to be used?

Is this work being done at some training institute or on-the-job. If on-the-job, the cics support people will know how this is done on your system.
Hope this helps,
