    Hey Mitchell, thanks for this great post. I have a doubt here.

    1.We are pulling last modified date a file which is stored in a blob using meta data activity. This is clear and now Stored procedure is returning the last Execution Date from my Control Table so are we storing our data from file into a table?

      Hey Fraz,

      What you do with the last modified date depends on what business problem you are trying to solve. If you want to compare the last modified date of the file to the last execution date from a control table then you can do that comparison in Azure Data Factory and it’s not necessary to write that information to a table. I outline how to do this comparison in my latest ADF blog using the IfCondition activity. See link below: https://mitchellpearson.com/2018/07/02/azure-data-factory-if-condition-activity/

      Thanks for reading my blog!
