For a Connection:
oConn.ConnectionTimeout = 30
For a Command:
oCmd.CommandTimeout = 30

This is the code I use for stored procedures:

Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim RS As ADODB.Recordset
Dim cmd As ADODB.Command

Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
cn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;User ID=uid;Password=pw;Initial Catalog=dbname;Data Source=server"

Set cmd = New ADODB.Command

With cmd
     .ActiveConnection = cn
     .CommandText = "usp_SPName"
     .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
     .Parameters("@Param1") = SomeValue
     .CommandTimeout = 300  'This is where the timeout is set
End with

Set RS = cmd.Execute

I'm using ConnectionString
and set
oConn.ConnectionString="...."
oConn.ConnectionTimeout=900000000
oConn.Open
recordset=OConn.Execute("....")
but I still receive Time out

Set the CommandTimeout not the ConnectionTimeout property.  In other words:
oConn.ConnectionString="...."
oConn.CommandTimeout = 0  'Infinite timeout
oConn.Open
recordset=OConn.Execute("....")

If the stored procedure times out, you might first check how much time it needs to execute (using query analyser). If there it takes only seconds, then you need to check why the connection takes so much time, otherwise start optimizing the proc

ConnectionTimeout doesn't work for me, as I change ConnectionString to ADODB.Command and set Time out it's work great.  Sorry, all answer is correct but I can give pts to 1 person only.
