Merge exel to contact details ??

Hello, pLease can someone help.
I am merging a 40,000 line exel document to the contact details in Act Proffesional 8.0.
I have saved the exel document as a text (dab telimited)
I have opened Act and imported using text deliminator.
I have changed the merge options to do not change.
The outcome when i continue is that my machines (or any i try) says out of memory) or sometimes it will complete even if i try mergeing in bocks of 5000 from exel but comes up with a lot less contacts. There are alot missing.
Can anyone help.
