SQLTransaction locking up table

Hi All,

I am using a SQLTransaction in a .Net application to insert records
into a SQL Server table. At one time, there are 5000 or more records to
be inserted one by one. It takes some 20-25 mins for the entire process
to run.

Another application accesses the same table.

As long as the insert process within the transaction isn't completed,
the second application is not getting any response from the server. I
even tried to run a SELECT on the table in SQL Query Analyzer while the
insert process was running and it also did not respond till the time
the insert process finished!

Is this normal that a transaction is locking up a table? How do I
overcome it? I am using IsolationLevel.ReadUncommitted for the

If I do not run the process within a SQLTransaction, the second process
or running the SELECT in Query Analyzer runs fine.
