MS Access Command Timeout

Hello experts
I'm having this problem: I have a complex form with subforms that manipulate data. In some cases, the SELECT on one of the views in the subform can be pretty long and take longer then 30 seconds. In that case, I get a timeout and the SELECT is not performed. For technical reasons, I can't change my code to base that SELECT on a temporary table filled in by stored procedure, I must base it on the view. Unfortunatly, I was unable to find a way to overcome the 30 second timeout limit Access has.

Please help
Thanks

Tools | Options Advanced - OLE/DDE timeout ... is this the property that needs to be bumped?

Try this:

Go to Tools Menu, Options and click the "Advanced" tab.  There's a field there marked OLE/DDE Timeout .. change the amount in this field to a greater number.
