I have a Pass-Through query in an MS Access (2007) database which times out on me.  How do I change the timeout value?  Thanks.

The screen shots in the link show a Access 2000 file format.  Anyway,  when I am in SQL view I don't see a "View" command in the menu bar at the top.  I am therefore not able to get to Properties.

You can go to the Properties of the SQL, click on Property Sheet, there you will see the settings.
