How do we count records present in an input ps and then overwrite that COUNT into an output ps present beforehand?
The COUNT should be overwritten on some specific columns only rest of the record of the output ps remains the same.

output ps is like...

2008376366 12345abcdefjkl

now I want to count the number of records in the input ps, and then replace '12345' in the output ps with the count calculated.

You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *  input file
RECORD 01
RECORD 02
RECORD 03
/*
//SORTOUT DD DSN=&&S1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,1)),DISP=(,PASS)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,
    BUILD=(80X),
    TRAILER1=('TCOUNT,''',COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=5),'''')
/*
//S2    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYMNAMES DD DSN=&&S1,DISP=(OLD,PASS)
//SORTIN DD *   original output file
2008376366  12345abcdefjkl
/*
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  modified output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(13:TCOUNT)
/*
