Hi....<BR><BR>I am currently having a component written in VB.Net. This is a data access component that I have developed. I am closing and disposing all the connections whereever I am opening but still I get the error "Time Out Expired.The timeout period<BR>elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool. This may be....". Can anyone tell me the reason why this is happening? I haven&#039;t set the connection to Nothing as the connection is being established and opened in a PRIVATE, READ ONLY Property.<BR><BR>Thanks in advance.
