Classic ASP page - DB connection Timeout issue

Hi,
I am maintaining some old ASP code that I did not write. I am a programmer and a DB admin but I am not very familiar with ASP.
Here is the situation:
I have a web page that runs a query to SQL 2005. If the query returns 5 or 10 records it's fine. If it returns a large number, (1000), then I get the following error message on my browser:

----
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e31'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Timeout expired
/utility/search_script.asp, line 201
-----
LINE 201 is below...

Set UserNames = Server.Createobject("ADODB.Recordset")
LINE 201 --> UserNames.Open sqlq, Connect  ,adopenstatic, adlockreadonly

If I run the same query in a SQL command line I get no problems returning the data.
So my question is:
Is the timeout issue an ASP script problem or an ODBC problem?
Suggestions please on how to fix this.  The entire script is about 400 lines long, which is why I didn't post the whole thing. But I can post additional pieces of it if need be.

Thanks!

The error you are getting is a sql command timeout.
By default the command timeout is 30 secs if your query is going to take longer than 30 seconds you will need to increase it by setting the CommandTimeOut property of your command object.
Something like :

myCommand.CommandTimeout = 60

See for further info : http://vyaskn.tripod.com/watch_your_timeouts.htm

If you want further help post some of the code above line 201 where the command and connection objects are created.

you try something like
<%
    Server.ScriptTimeout = 180
%>

in asp code

Thanks for the comments.
In my case, Jacko72's answer was correct. I looked at the sql statement that was being passed. It was different then I thought it was. It was joining on 4 tables. Anyway, the SQL is what was timing out. Thanks!
