Getting time out error running a query on SQL Server 2000 DB from VB

I'm working on an application in VB environment. The database that I'm using is of MS SQL Server 2000. When I run the application it often happens that running any complicated or large query from VB gives timeout error, whereas running the same query using Query Analyzer of MS SQL Server 2000 works although it takes some time. How can I get rid of it?

The difference is that Query Analyzer does not have a timeout and ADO has a default timeout of 30 seconds.  So depending how you are executing the SQL statement you need to either increase the CommandTimeout property or set it to 0 (infinite) to be the same as Query Analyzer.

And of course the better answer is to analyze why it is taking so long in the first place.

You can set the ADO timeout if you steer your query through several objects.

Try this:
