You enable data retrieval services in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 2.0. You then configure a data-driven Web Part on a Web Part page to access data from a data source. However, if the Web service takes more than 30 seconds to send a response, a time-out occurs. Data that is retrieved from the data source is not displayed in the Web Part.
This problem occurs because the SOAP adapter times out after 30 seconds. This problem may occur when you connect to a slow data source.
This problem was first fixed in a hotfix that is now contained in a service pack. If you installed the latest Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 service pack, you do not have to install the hotfix.
