Pity you are not on SQL 2008, since INSERT can be minimally logged on SQL
There are not really that many options, but it may help to do it in batches
of 10000, 50000 or 100000 rows. It is essential that if you batch, that you
select the batches so that the selection itself does not take too much
But then again, maybe that is the problem? That is, it is not the insertion
that actually takes time, but it is the selection of it. Could you post an
example of your procedures?
