You can use SORT or IEBGENER

Please supply ?50.

The syntax for the sort solution can be found in the sort manuals, and for IEBGENER in the utilities manual, both easily accessible from the "Manuals" button on the top of this page.

The record count can be obtained using various methods.
three of them I know

1) Using DFSORT
your sysin card will be like this:
Code:
//SYSIN    DD    *                   
   OPTION COPY                       
   OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,         
     TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=8)) 
 /*     



2) using ICETOOL
Code:
//TOOLIN    DD *         
  COUNT FROM(INPFILE)   
/*   


3) Using fileaid
Code:
//Step1   EXEC PGM=FILEAID 
...
your card will be
//SYSIN    DD * 
$$DD01 TALLY     
/*         


Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Viji
