Help with scripting a DSQuery request

I have the following DSQuery which outputs to a text file. I then have to pull that into a file editior and count the lines. I would like to convert this to a vbs file so I can run from a command line. The gotcha is that I am currently using findstr to filter out 'stuff'.

dsquery user dc=mydomain,DC=oc,DC=sample,DC=com -limit 0 |findstr /v /i "delete inactive SystemMailbox .adm Monitoring"|findstr /i /v "Org Accts"

Ideal output would be something like
Count: 1027

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this addition to your command.

dsquery user dc=mydomain,DC=oc,DC=sample,DC=com -limit 0 |findstr /v /i "delete inactive SystemMailbox .adm Monitoring"|findstr /i /v "Org Accts"|find /c /v ""

Can you be more specific, that should have returned the count of the number of selected items, did you not get that?  Or did you get an error?
