Access Time-out period.... Or session variable time limit?

  Asked By: Gerritt    Date: Jul 16    Category: Asp.net    Views: 1340

I am currently using access for development, but noticed that after awhile the connectivity will not work. For example there is a page that is reading the information, and after a short time if refreshed or "post-back" the information will be missing. If I take the page back one and "re-run" the page, the information will be fine.

The page where this is occuring is depending on a session

variable from a previous page for input. Is there a time out period for session variables?

The only other thing I can think of is that there is some type of time-out feature in access.
Has anybody ran into a similiar problem or is this an elementary
problem? Can somebody please help?

Yes there is a session  time-out.

It is set to a default of 20 minutes in web.config.

Although I don't have the exact

time, It seems like the time  is shorter than 20min. But, how do you

go about changing it?

Here you go open your web.config:

Go/find this section:




sqlConnectionString="data source=;user id=sa;password="




Change timeout="20" to what ever you want it to be.

If this doesn't work  maybe you have another Web.config file that your application is taking its settings from.

First try this and if it doesn't work please let us know of the folder structure
