What I meant was what mechanism are you using to "run" the view? Since a view is a virtual table, the only way to query its contents is via a SELECT statement. The question is, how do you "do" the SELECT? For example, Query Analyzer, EM, ISQL.EXE, OSQL.EXE, via an ODBC connection, ADO, ADO .NET, etc etc. Each of these has its own way of setting the command/query timeout.
