Check what kind of activity is running on SQL Server, run PERFMON to capture counters for further assessment. If that file is located on a network drive, then make sure there is no issues on network to pull the information and also SQLAgent has required privileges to perform the task. Satya SKJ

Give us a technical idea of how you come up with "it is taking up lot of resources and CPU usage". Please provide the table indexes and how you are performing the transaction (the actual syntax will be a good start). May the Almighty God bless us all!
