Hi

I add "Connection Timeout=300" to my VB.net connection string as shown by an expert but it still times out
after around 20 seconds as opposed to the 300 seconds I have set it to. What am I doing wrong?
I am using the SQLBulkCopy class so need things to run longer


"Server=xxxxxx;Database=Demo2;Uid=Demo2;Password=xxxxx;Connection Timeout=300"

Connection timeout is different from Command timeout. The first is only used when you open a connection to SQL Server database. The second is used in each command that you are sending to SQL Server.

To set the the command timeout do something like this.

connection.Open()
Dim command As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand(queryString, connection)
'' Setting command timeout to 40 second
command.CommandTimeout = 40

Open in new window
