If I were you I would try to import the text file into a table. Then by adding proper indexes on that table, it would be much easier and more optimized task to compare and update the tables as per requirement. Hope it helps.

you can create a bare-bones SSIS package for your file by right clicking on your database the selecting Tasks > Import Data... You can let the package create a new table for you. Once the file is loaded into its table, you can use TSQL to do the status update

Its quite easy if you know SSIS, as it is very flexible. I would rather suggest that you learn SSIS by creating some packages in test environment. Then, we would definitely help once you let us know how are you implementing it in the SSIS package and what part is not implementable for you. I hope you do understand that it is for your good.

You could get started learning about SSIS by going through the "Stairway to SSIS" series - http://www.sqlservercentral.com/stairway/72494/
