Hi Experts

My ODBC driver  (called in ASP) is timing out  my queries before they're done (their statistical queries on lots of data, and take about 3 to 4 minutes to run), but I can't see anywhere in the ODBC config snapin to set the timeout period. Can you help?

(MS SQL 2000)

Try manually setting your command timeout:

Set Db = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Db.CommandTimeout = 600 'in seconds, 600 = 10 minutes

Sorry, meant to say try setting the ASP timeout, as opposed to an ODBC timeout.

No, you were right the first time. .CommandTimes=600 does the trick.
