I would write a loader routine that was responsible for reading in the
data and putting it into the database / whatever you want to do with
it. For that I would call from Omnis to a python script. Python is able
to read files line at a time without having to load it all into ram.
This mean you can load in any amount of source records / size of import
My 2c, python plus Omnis is a very powerful combination and easy to
integrate and exchange messages in both directions.
