I have a web application written with C# and mvc application. This app will load an excel file to the database and log the result in a text file. How can I display the log file to my user/client at the end of the load. The log file will just indicate the total number of records loaded.

some code samples will be appreciated.

If you know the name of, and the path to, the log file, just store the name and display the list of log files on a page, making each name a link to the log file itself.  If it's just a text file, it should open in any browser.

Thanks Paulmacd. Is this possible to be done without the page refreshing. Assuming my user clicks on submit and the upload completes. I will like to show the link to the file at the bottom of my page. Which container do I use to store this link? Literal? Am using mvc.

Without using javascript of some sort, I don't know how to do it without a refresh.  Here's some ideas:

As to what container - I don't think it matters.  Anything you can tap for its InnerHTML property should work.  Just put an <a> tag to wherever the log file is located.
