One of my windows app keeps getting this error below. Is it on just a sql time out right? Could it be anything else?

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040E31): [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Timeout expired
   at ADODB.RecordsetClass.Open(Object Source, Object ActiveConnection, CursorTypeEnum CursorType, LockTypeEnum LockType, Int32 Options)

The Connection object has a ConnectionTimeOut property that is set to 15 seconds by default. That time might have been shortened to something too low somewhere, or you might need to set it to a higher value in some situations.

How can I set sql time out from code behind?

cmd.commandtimeout = 30 for 30 seconds?

Sorry, you did not specify anywhere that you were working with a web application. I have no idea how to deal with these things in ASP.
