Hello all!
How can i set up this param ?

    SQL_QUERY_TIMEOUT

i read about it, in the IIS4 Option pack Help Files.
(<local webserver>/iishelp/iis/htm/asp/iiidcfld.htm)

It refers to idc /htx files, which are the old redundant asp files.
It says that this "number of seconds to wait for a SQL statement to execute before canceling the query"

Obviously, the ODBC driver is timing out, and I need to reset the default timeout number for the ODBC driver.
This is the closest thing I have come up with for an answer.

So my problem is now this - how to set this Param in the new asp format?
or how to set it in ANY SQL Query.

or where could i find more information about it?

Thanks for all helpful answers :-)

Thank you so much, kind sir!

   I've been plagued by this for ... God knows how long!

My mistake - i was using ConnDB.ConnectionTimeout = <time value>
instead of ConnDB.CommandTimeout = <time value>

Last night, i did do this though, and it worked ....


Const      DB_CONNECT_STR = "Data Source=WebCast;User ID=sa;Password=;SQL_QUERY_TIMEOUT=1000"

But it did work once, and once it didn't work .... weird...

anyways, i just had a quick go with your suggesstion, and it was
fine :-)

Obviously, CommandTimeout is for Connection objects, while
ConnectionTimeout is for recordsets - like you noted sorta ?

Above, you said connection.COMMANDTIMEOUT (for record sets) and
command.COMMANDTIMEOUT (for command obj) .. what is the difference? Shout record sets should have been Connection.CONNECTIONTIMEOUT ?

the first part is just the name of the object created ....

Anyways, so if this is long winded and confussed - just thank you for the answer, which was (like always) looking me in the face :-)

Connnection.CommandTimeout sets the timeout of a command (for example, an SQL query), but Connection.ConnectionTimeout sets the timeout for the initial connection (username/password handshaking, which takes place BEFORE any SQL queries are executed).
