I am new to this forum and very new to vb.net. The previous programmer wrote a program in vb.net that helps us with our merchandise received transactions. It is now getting the following error: "System.Data.SQLClient.SQLException Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding. The statement has been terminated. Can anyone point me in the direction to find a solution to this issue? This is the first thing they have asked me to solve at work regarding vb.net. I normally program in SQL and some in VB.
