You can't do that w/ EXEC...you have to use sp_executesql instead:

declare @Tablename varchar(50)
SET @Tablename = 'OCRD';
DECLARE @SQLString nvarchar(500);
DECLARE @ParmDefinition nvarchar(500);
DECLARE @RecCount INT;


SET @SQLString = N'SELECT @RecCount = COUNT(*)
   FROM ' + @TableName + '
   WHERE where  cardType = ''S'''
SET @ParmDefinition = N'@RecCount INT OUTPUT';

EXECUTE sp_executesql @SQLString, @ParmDefinition, @RecCount=@RecCount OUTPUT;
SELECT @RecCount;
