Hi,
can someone please help with a problem i've just encountered. I have a classic asp page which runs a query and then creates an excel file using outlook web components. The problem is the query is still running when the open file dialog box appears so the file created is incomplete. Does anybody know how to check the status of the sql query or how to issue a wait command?

thanks in advance

You can find it this way...  

SELECT @@SPID AS 'ID', SYSTEM_USER AS 'Login Name', USER AS 'User Name'
WHERE [Login Name] = 'YOUR LOGIN NAME HERE'
