Can anyone tell me how to set the command timeout to 0, or any other number for that matter using the following recordset connection and open string?
objConn.Open "Driver={SQL Server}" & _
           "Server=x.x.x.x;" & _
           "Address=x.x.x.x,1433;" & _
           "Network=DBMSSOCN;" & _
           "Database=yyy;" & _
           "Uid=user" & _
sSQL = "SELECT InvoiceYear, InvoiceMonth, InvoiceDay, InvoiceDate, InstituteName, CourseName, ItemNet , ItemTax FROM dbo.Table_Sales ORDER BY InvoiceDate"
rsData.Open sSQL, objConn, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText
Many thanks in advance

If by timeout you mean "to zero because when I run this query I get a timeout error" I'd say you need to fix the connection string. And by the way, what version of Excel are you running and on what Windows?

Might be a driver issue too. 32-bit?

Solution 1

Try changing your connection string to one found on this page.

Perhaps setting the Connect Timeout parameter to 300 seconds (5min) like this:
"Server=ServerName\InstanceName;Database=yyy;User Id=user;Password=pass;Connection Timeout=300;"

Alternatively you could set one of these properties found on the ADO connection object:
