PL/SQL correcting record count

I have the listed below  code that I have modified with this site's help.  The method of counting the number of rows works well for other sql queries, but when I try to use it with a union option, the record count is incorrect.  How do I fix?

If I were to remove the UNION statement, is there a way I could pass the num_cnt from the first select and add it to the second?

It appears you're building a PIPE delimited file by appending all the columns together, my guess is you're going to read that file into EXCEL..  there are 100's of ways to do this.  TOAD does great at it.  and ROWNUM is not always "sorted" the way you want.

but just wrap the entire thing and select from that.

I was able get it to run.  See code below.  But there are two errors.  First, the final row count is not being passed to the variable &&Num_Cnt in the final select statement.  Second, in the output file, each record contains the record number.  This should not be there.  I've included the complete code.
