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:

Code:

//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    *                                               
  OPTION COPY                                                     
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,                                       
    TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=8))                               
/*


&&CT will have one record with the 8-byte count, e.g.

00000019

If that's not what you want to do, then you need to provide more details.
