Follow the recommendation in your other post. . . Download and refer to Vsam Demystified.

Also suggest you find a few working programs on your system and clone one of these for your testing. It is seldom a good idea to start from scratch - unless your program is to be the very first cics/vsam program on the system (which is highly unlikely).
Hope this helps,
