I get the following error;

Error Number: 350
Error Text: Native SQL Error Code
Error Hint Text: Native SQL Error Code

This code runs for a small file of 15 records but not for 600. I have no idea what timeout happened. I checked the ODBC and SQL. I changed the IIS server timeout from 120 to 360 but no change. The timeout actually happens at about 45 seconds. The table has about 130 records in it when it fails (starts with zero).

I think that this error does not occur on the web server, but on the SQL Server. Inside SQL Server timeouts can be defined as well (don't know exactly where).

Since the error occurs while inserting data into a table, my guess is that the table is locked at the moment of the insert and that it takes too long to be released so your data can be inserted. Are there any other processes running on the same SQL Server table? Like any other applications inserting/updating or deleting? Or is your application the only application at that moment.

What you could do is use enable tracing on the SQL Server and see what happens when you insert data.
this has nothing to do with the db, it is a odbc connection timeout between db and app. you need to set the actual connection variables:
ConnectionTimeout = 0
CommandTimeout = 0

note: 0 = never times out, good for testing but in best practice you want to set it to 2x your system threshold but never infinite. for more info on commandtimeout.

Can you point me to the timeout parameters. I cannot find them under ODBC admin or SQL Ent Manager. Do I have to set them with javascript? That might be the only access I have to them via html.
