In Visual InterDev 6.0, setting the timeout values for queries run in Visual Data Tools has no effect. As a result, queries run against large data sets can timeout.


Visual InterDev does not pass the timeout settings in Data Tools under Options on the Tools menu to the Visual Data Tools query pane.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This bug was corrected in Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 3. For more information about Visual Studio service packs, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

194295 HOWTO: Tell That Visual Studio 6.0 Service Packs Are Installed


These timeouts are unrelated to ADO timeout queries for an Active Server Page.

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

In Visual InterDev 6.0:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, then select Data Tools.
  2. Choose Data View.
  3. Change SQL query timeout to 1 second.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Connect to a large database table.
  6. Select the Data View pane, then double-click a table and execute a query that would take longer than 1 second.
