Yes it is.
First APPEND as many records as you want BEFORE TableUpdate the view. DO NOT touch IDENTITY field. When you want to send updates back to SQL Server do something like:
IF NOT TABLEUPDATE(1, .t., [ViewAlias])
   MessageBox([Update is not successful ] +laError[1,2])
** To get all new Identity values
** If you want to speed this up check if you have some new records
** and then requery. if you don't have new records you don't need this line
