FCT - File Control Table

The FCT maintains control information of all files used under CICS. For each file used, the FCT contains:
  • The file name and type, such as KSDS, ESDS, or RRDS.
  • A list of the valid file control operations.
  • Information on the records, such as minimum and maximum length, whether they are read sequentially or randomly, and if they can be deleted or modified.
