Server.Timeout change not working

I've written a SQL 2000 stored procedure that goes into my database, checks to see whether or not indexes exist for my data, and if not, continues on and adds them.

However, I have about 650,000 records that need to be processed, holding up the script for a long time.

I've tried to use Server.Timeout to change the setting, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be working.


My code is as follows:

<% option explicit
Response.Buffer = TRUE
Server.ScriptTimeout = 3600
'response.write Server.ScriptTimeout

b = c.Execute(index)  'index = "Execute sp_...."

%>

The error I keep getting is:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e31'

Timeout expired

/web/list.asp, line 81


Line 81 is the Execute Line.


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Forgot to mention that the timeout occurs after the default time, about 90 seconds.

You have to change the Connection.Timeout and Command.Timeout values of the Connection Object and not the Server.Timeout property alone.

What you are experiencing is an ADO Problem and not an ASP problem.

secondly, you shouldn't really be using ASP for this kind of work. It wasn't designed for this.

Checking 650,000 rows with ASP is terrible. Write A VB Programme, or better still a C# or VB.NET programme dedicated to do this.

Thanks for the help.  Could you elaborate more on the other possibilies?  

The project I'm working must be on the web, so how could I change what I'm doing to speed up the process?

Thanks again.

You are better off doing this:
1. Have a web page that accepts administrative commands,
submitting this to the database as a single record per action.

2. Inside Microsoft SQL Server, create a scheduled task that checks on specified intervals for the particular value. Based on the field being say 1 (a bit type field), it fires off the action based on the fieldname. After the work is done, reset the bit to 0.

This is best performed solely inside Microsoft SQL Server and not via ASP.
