Hi, i need a VBscript to compare 2 files (source and destination files)  and append the non existing entry in the destination folder. 

source - which has TNSnames.ora in a particular location and the destination file which has TNSnames.ora. in the local machine. compare both and append the new or non existing entry in the destination folder

Wow! A script like that would take so much work in order to operate properly, i.e. with decent error-trapping, that it would become a project in its own right!

Why not go the simplest route: host TNSNAMES.ORA on a server share and point clients at that copy? Apart from any other consideration, you massively reduce the administrative nightmare of maintaining the reference copy and keeping the remote ones up-to-date.
