BUG #: 352122 (SHILOH_BUGS)


Opening a view that executes a long running query in the SQL Server 7.0 Enterprise Manager (SEM) will get an ODBC Timeout error.


The SEM's default for QueryTimeout is 30 seconds, and the timeout value is not configurable.


Do not open long running queries from the SEM. Run the query from Query Analyzer instead of SEM.


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