Hi,

I have a vb.net program that runs a query against an Oracle database, opens a transaction to a Sql Server database, then inserts all records from the Oracle database query into Sql Server. Current, I am using the code below and the loop to insert data takes a very long time compared to just the actual query to Oracle.  what is the fastest way to insert these records to sql Server?  

Dim cnx As New OracleClient.OracleConnection(connectString)
Dim cnxSqlServer As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
Dim cmd As New OracleClient.OracleCommand()

cmd.Connection = cnx
cnx.Open()
cmd.CommandText = sql
cmd.Connection = cnx
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text

cnxSqlServer.ConnectionString = connectStringSQLServer
cnxSqlServer.Open()
 Dim transaction = cnxSqlServer.BeginTransaction()
  Dim reader As OracleClient.OracleDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
        Try
            If reader.HasRows Then
                Do While reader.Read()
                    INSERT INTO SQL Server Table
                Loop
               transaction.Commit()
         End If

        Catch sqlex As SqlException
               transaction.Rollback()
        Catch ex As Exception
               transaction.Rollback()
       End Try
