You can do it via bteq,

import the file contents to a table, do an SQL comparison, use bteq .if statements to do further processing etc.

But don't you think it's better to do this job via your batch script itself ?

At least in Unix that's what I would have done. SQL is quite cumbersome for all this sort of work.
