Hi,

Is there anyway in JCL by which :-
in step 1) I can count number of records in the file (not just whether file is empty or not but actual count of records)
and in step 2) pass that count to program through parm in next step.

thanks.

Yes you can count the number of records in File.Try this JCL

Code:
//SORTTST JOB (ACCT#),'SORT  ',NOTIFY=&SYSUID,CLASS=T,MSGCLASS=X       
//STEP01  EXEC PGM=SORT                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD   SYSOUT=*                                               
//SORTIN  DD DSN=Input file name,DISP=SHR                       
//SORTOUT DD DSN=outputfile.name,DISP=SHR                       
//SYSIN   DD *                                                         
  OPTION COPY                                                           
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,                                             
   TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M10,LENGTH=02))                                     
/*                                                                     
//SYSUDUMP   DD SYSOUT=*

//COUNT EXEC PGM=ICETOOL                         
//*
//TOOLMSG    DD   SYSOUT=*                           
//DFSMSG     DD   SYSOUT=*                           
//*
//COUNT      DD   DSN=dataset name,
//               DISP=SHR
//*
//TOOLIN     DD   DATA                               
  COUNT FROM(COUNT)                                   
/*                                                 
//*
