I have a ETL process that runs on weekly basis which read data froma flat file to an external table.In this process i have defined log file and bad file too, to keep a track of the data transformation. But as i am using all this for the 1st time....I dont know how to later use the .bad and .log file to compare data with the actual database

Unless there's something I don't see, here it is: after data gets loaded, first check the LOG file. In there you'll see whether all records are successfully loaded or not.

If not, you'll see a reason why this happened. Then check BAD and DSC (discarded) records file and see what to do with them; if you can fix the error(s), do that and reload. If not, well, I don't know; you'll have to decide what next.

And - please, do not multipost. Put the question to Forum that best suits your problem.
