Does anybody know how to get around the OLE Timeout Error that occurs when trying to pass information from VB to Excel. I can't find any reference in the Win95 Registry to control this and I haven't seen any thing like the SQL timeout control.

If you want to wait longer, change the value of App.OleRequestPendingTimeout

If you want to trap the error, look into App.OleServerBusyRaiseError

Since posting this Quiestion I ah dalready found the App.OleRequestPendingTimeout settings. The problem that now stumps me, is how do I edit these settings. I have been unable to do so through the APP/IDE/REGISTRY.

This then leaves me back at square one.

How do you edit them? I'm confused-

You Just say App.OleRequestPendingTimeout = <your new setting>

Or am I really missing something here...?

Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to evaluate the command instead of set it.
i.e. ?App.OleRequestPendingTimeout = <your new setting>  instead of just App.OleRequestPendingTimeout = <your new setting>, without the ?????.

I think that you earned these points for at least my stupidity.!!!!
