Creating huge number of pages at one time.

Hello, I need to import data from external source, and create coresponding pages. It's about 3000 records, so it will be over 3000 pages. I would like to do it in most efficient way. Now the operation takes litle bit to long. Here is the code: (I am using Microsoft Data Application Block) string sqlCommandString; sqlCommandString = "SELECT Title, SubTitle, Text FROM tblText"; Database database = DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase("DefaultConnection"); DbCommand command = lazuriteDatabase.GetSqlStringCommand(sqlCommandString); // Here is the crucial part using (IDataReader reader = lazuriteDatabase.ExecuteReader(command)) { PageType pageType = PageType.Load("Pigment Term"); PageReference parent = new PageReference(5); Global.EPDataFactory.DeleteChildren(parent, true); while (reader.Read()) { PageData newDataPage = Global.EPDataFactory.GetDefaultPageData(parent, pageType.ID); newDataPage.PageName = Convert.ToString(reader["Title"]); newDataPage.Property["Title"].Value = Convert.ToString(reader["Title"]); newDataPage.Property["Subtitle"].Value = Convert.ToString(reader["SubTitle"]); newDataPage.Property["BodyText"].Value = Convert.ToString(reader["Text"]); Global.EPDataFactory.Save(newDataPage, EPiServer.DataAccess.SaveAction.Save); } reader.Close(); } Is there any better way? Maybe if I first create all Pages in PageDataCollection, and after that call Save mathod for each of them it will be faster? Any ideas? Thank's a lot.

Creating pages is never fast. Is this something you do regulary in a job? If you are importing 3000 pages as one time deal, does it matter if it takes a minute or two? I wouldn't think creating the pages and batch saving them will improve performance, but please try it and let us know what you find out.
