We have hp unix 11.0 and oracle 11.o database in background. Front end we have iis 6 and .net application internal portal called intranet. We connect INTRANET with oracle client 11.2 odbc driver.

sometimes whenever we try to connect oracle database using our internal portal webpage we are getting below mentioned error

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e31'
[Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-01013: user requested cancel of current operation
/quote/QuoteBrowse.asp, line 823

sometimes page open and sometimes getting above error message.

We are using oracle 11.2 clients in clients computer and intranet server.

Need help to resolve this issue.

- this probably due to the timeout config on your ODBC data source setup.
- go to the ODBC settings for the data source and clear/untick the option for Enable Query Timeout. if there is any indication on timeout in second/min, try set it higher or 0 to disable it.

it looks like your using the microsoft provider, not the oracle provider
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers

the oracle OLE DB provider is part of the oracle client
what part are you installing of the oracle client ?

>>We connect INTRANET with oracle client 11.2 odbc driver.

I strongly encourage you to move to ODP.Net for your data provider and forget about ODBC and ANY Microsoft drivers to connect to Oracle.


If you must use ODBC, use native Oracle drivers.

What threw me was the first part of the error "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e31'"

>>what is ODP.Net?

Oracle's .Net data access provider.


>>u mean stop using odbc and install odp.net only??

Yes.  This is a native .Net provider and you will have much greater flexibility over ODBC.
