Bulk insert data from feed file to Oracle database using ASP and vbscript.

Hello Experts,
I need to improve a functionality in one of my projects. Currently i have a feature by which the users can upload a feed file from ASP/vbscript frontend to the server and then this feed is read and data is inserted row by row into the oracle database. There are about 100,000 records to be inserted and it takes around 20 to 30 minutes for this activity to complete. Given that this is a frontend activity, the time it takes is too much. Please suggest some alternative to improve the performance.
Do Until objTextStream.AtEndOfStream
			'Response.Write "<script>alert('inside do until');</script>"
				nextLine = objTextStream.Readline 
				aLine = split(nextLine, ",")
				strIns = "insert into iprism.tb_ipcg_rev_adj_balances_load " & _
					   " (account_cd, ipcg_prod_cd, ibu_cd, ytd_bal) " & _
					   " values ( '"& aLine(0) &"' , " & _
				       " '"& aLine(1) &"' , " & _
					   " '"& aLine(2) &"' , " & _
					   " "& aLine(3) &") " 
			'Response.Write "<script>alert('before insert execute');</script>"
			'Response.Write "<script>alert('after insert execute');</script>"

Try somethign like this

count = 0
Do Until objTextStream.AtEndOfStream
nextLine = objTextStream.Readline
aLine = split(nextLine, ",")
strIns = strIns = "insert into iprism.tb_ipcg_rev_adj_balances_load " & _
  " (account_cd, ipcg_prod_cd, ibu_cd, ytd_bal) " & _
   " values ( '"& aLine(0) &"' , " & _
       " '"& aLine(1) &"' , " & _
   " '"& aLine(2) &"' , " & _
   " "& aLine(3) &"); " & vbcrlf
if count MOD 100 Then
   strIns = ""
End if
count = count + 1

This will execute 100 insert statements at one shot instead of processing one by one. This will significantly improve process time.

You can also try to increase query batch from 100 to some higher number.
