I have a Linked Server to the Oracle Database and occasionally my SQL7 - Store Procedure HANGS.
It Hangs in the Oracle OLEDB  (also hangs in the ODBC) --- Since this is an automated process...is there a function or codes that I can incorporate in my store procedure to capture this hanging problem/process --- because I need to automatically terminate the store procedure and re-query.

You can put in a scheduled task which looks at master..sysprocesses for this hanging process - or probably better to have a table

Process
   spid
   starttime
   endtime
   logontime

The oracle process puts it's spid, logontime and starttime and logontime in this table at start and either deletes the entry or updates the endtime on completion (the logontime is so that you can tell if the spid is still the same one and it hasn't crashed before competion).

The scheduled task can then kill the process.
It depends on how this is hanging as to whether a kill will work but is probably the best you can do - could also send an email to tell someone to look at it.
