I am using vb.net and access 2007 database.

I need to change the value of the connection timeout value.

On the msdn for the oledbconnection.ConnectionTimeout Property, but that is ReadOnly.

Can you please give me the code to change the default value of the connection timeout value.

Thanks in advance.

The default value is 15seconds, if you can't connect to the DB in this time then you likely have other problems that you need to resolve.

However, you can change it here in your VB Code connection string:
Public Sub CreateOleDbConnection()
    Dim myConnString As String = _
       "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=SSPI;Connect Timeout=30;"
    Dim myConnection As New OleDbConnection(myConnString)
    myConnection.Open()
End Sub

I use a database file on my connectin string.

Below is the kind of connectionstring I use:


Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0; DataSource:\\DatabaseWRK\DataFiles\Client.accdb

Could you please insert the above connectinString into the connectinSting that you commented above. Because I am new to the kind of connection string that you have given me.

Thanks in advance.
