Gary,

What you need is to redirect the STDOUT (Standard output) created by the
QSH command to a temp file. Somthing like this:

DLTF QTEMP/QSH_OUT
MONMSG CPF2105

CRTPF QTEMP/QSH_OUT RCDLEN(512)
OVRDBF STDOUT QTEMP/QSH_OUT

(Your QSH command)

DLTOVR STDOUT


Then you can RCVF QSH_OUT and get the number of records.

BTW, to retrieve the number of records in a PF you can simply:

RTVMBR MYLIB/MYFILE NBRCURRCD(&CL_VAR)


HTH,

Luis
