    where to set timeout ?

    I have a linked excel table in my database but sometimes because the network is down I am getting "not responding" message from Access if I accidentlaly try to open the linked table while off-line. That does not seem to timeout at all. I am wondering where I can actually set the timeout so Access will not hang trying to get to the linked source?

    There is no such option in the Access database. Any sort of time out /sleep is going to be an OS option.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
