If we're talking an SSIS package, there is a Row Count transformation that you can insert between the source and destination, that will count the rows in the source and save to a variable.  Then you can use that variable however you wish.

Create an variable, int data type, name it something like 'iRowCount'
Insert the Row Count transform between source and destination in your data flow, connecting the arrows.
Double-click on the Row Count transform, and set the Variable Name property to your variable.

Then, tell us what you wish to do with this count.
