COUNT FROM(IN2) USING (CTL1)
In CTL1 u add your include condn/or copy condn.....

The DFSORT/ICETOOL COUNT operator above displays the count in a message in the TOOLMSG data set, so it's probably not what you want to do if you need to pass the count to another step.
If you can pass the count as a record in a data set, then you can use this DFSORT job to do it:
//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=... input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=&&CT,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,1)),DISP=(,PASS)
//SYSIN DD *
&&CT will have one record with the 8-byte count, e.g.
If that's not what you want to do, then you need to provide more details.
