I am trying to capture records counts from an IDCAMS job step. I can do this from a sort utility, using an OUTFIL parameter; but I don't see any good way to do it with an IDCAMS job step.
What I want to do is copy the count that is seen in the SYSOUT to a file, that can be read by another program.

You can get the record count details using SORT utility using the information available in the SYSOUT dataset. Point the SYSOUT information to a dataset and using INCLUDE COND you can get the information.

i would do something like this: (assuming u are working on VSAM datasets)..
//SDECOLL EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD DSN=&&TMP1,
//SYSIN DD *
LISTCAT ENT(XXX.KSDS) ALL
//EXTRTDT1 EXEC PGM=SELCOPY (OR OTHER FILE TAILORING UTILITY)
//INDD DD DSN=&&TMP1,DISP=(OLD,PASS)
//OUTDD DD DSN=XXX.WHAT.EVER,
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
WRITE YOUR LOGIC HERE to extract REC-TOTAL from the &&TMP1...
but it would be helpful to know why you want to do this using IDCAMS.. what's the business requirement..

Especially as the IDCAMS record count is only updated at sucessful close of dataset.
