If your entire procedure is coming from Access or another Microsoft Office
application, then I would just write a VBA script to import all of the update
statements into the database.  If not, then I would look into some of the
macro programs out there and see if you can record a procedure and simply play
it back.  Doing something a few thousand times is exactly what computers were
created to do.
