    I want to set the value returned by the count (using following execute statement) to an output parameter of an stored procedure....
    How can I do this?

    Execute ("SELECT Count(*) FROM male_profiles WHERE ProfileID like 'A%'")

    The easiest way is to take the query and put it in a stored procedure. When you have done that, then you can use the RETURN statement to return the count value to a variable used within the EXECUTE statement, like so:

    EXECUTE @lintReturnValue=spWhatever

    spWhatever will be the query in your post, with the addition of a RETURN statement to return your count value
