1) If you know the dataset name, look at the JCL that creates the file
2) Talk nicely to your storage people to see if they can run a TMS report

if you have sort product, you can use the below sort card for getting the the record count in the spool

Code:

//SORTIN DD DSN=....GDG tape file..
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN     DD *
   SORT FIELDS=COPY                                     
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M10))
