You can use the RTVMBRD command to retrieve the number of current records
(keyword NBRCURRCD).  You didn't mention the application's function.  Unless
you are clearing the file after your process runs (which would be bad should
your process fail), I'd recommend checking change date (keyword CHGDATE) for
daily processes that involve transfers from other systems -- on the off chance
that today's file has the same number of records as yesterday's...

HTH,
