count Number of Items in a temp table

Hi all  
I have a temp table #myTable

 I am looking for a way to do this
      select @intcount = count(*)            
      from #myTable
Note I have a conditional processing away from the temp Table. i.e
Create table  #LCHItems(bla, bla)
Insert into #myTable  exec(@sql_trans)

if (myVariable = newVar)
begin
select @intcount = count(*)            
      from #myTable
end

else


begin
end

just uses @@rowcount as above comment

Create table  #LCHItems(bla, bla)
Insert into #myTable  exec(@sql_trans)
SET @intcount = @@ROWCOUNT

then you can have value of @intcount right away

if this still can't work it out in your situation, you should provide more additional details

Use Global Temporary Tables
Global temporary tables operate much like local temporary tables; they are created in tempdb and cause less locking and logging than permanent tables

In that case use Table Variable.
Syntax : DECLARE @myTable TABLE (var1 int, var2 varchar, etc...)
This is faster and create less locking on the server. the table is dropped automatically at the end of the statement execution.

You can get row count from @@rowcount, getting it after you execute statement

decalare @cnt int
exec(@sql_trans)
set @cnt=@@rowcount
