in reply to updating records into RDBMS from a text file

Many relational databases have very efficient built-in utilities for uploading data from files into tables. (Sybase has the bcp utility, MySQL has the LOAD DATA statement). These are 'usually' very efficient and can be set up to handle different data delimiters, formats, etc.

For most cases it's worth using these tools rather than doing extra work to write your own import utilities.
