SQL timeouts in VB6

Hello,
I want to change the default timeouts for SQL 7.

My choices are:  

1. Change the connection string

2. Change it inside of VB6
I use ADODB connection objects to connect to the database.

I've tried doing a command like gcnn.CommandTimeout = 120, but it always seem to timeout after 30 seconds (the default)

Any ideas?

Malcolm

Hmmm, strange. The gcnn.CommandTimeout = 120 (I assume this is your connection object) should work for you, are you sure it is in effect when you execute your query?  Try:

dim lTO as long
lTO = gcnn.CommandTimeout

just before you run your query and see that it is really set to 120...
You are aware that a Command object has its own CommandTimeout property and is not affected by the connection's setting?

Hey,
Good call ont he command object timeout.  

That solved the problem!

I was having one of the crap days when you get stuck in lots and lots of meetings and constantly putting out fires.  

Nice to have an annoying problem solved by someone else.

Thanks alot!
