Thank you for trying that solution. But I am helpless if you dont explain what is not working.
Show us what you tried and what you got. Probably I may have missed something in the sed statement.
The only other sed statement I can think of is
sed -n -e "s/.*Total number of lines: \(.*\)/\1/p" input.file
