Here is a stored procedure which we use to port the data from a remote server to our data warehouse server. The SP uses a generic style where all the tables along with its schema and data will be loaded into the data warehouse.

The script is working fine, but now we have a requirement where few of the tables like customer_access (which I have filtered in the query - couple more tables are there) need to be refreshed within a short time (1-2 minutes).The data count of those tables is around 500K to 1000K, hence the porting takes around 7-8 minutes.

The logic used in the script is drop and recreate each and every time the table will be dropped and recreated.

To make it faster I thought of using the MERGE or UPSERT logic and I need your suggestions on implementing this in a most generic way which will work for all tables.
