Hi fairly new to sql but getting the hang of it but now i have started to work with some large qty of data i keep gettingqueries timing out.

i have a large table of data millions of records can't check how many because every time i open the few that gives me the total records it times out the same with another view that gives me the max date both these views work on identical smaller samples of data.

Is there a setting i can increase or is there some size limits i have exceeded

Any help much appreciated

Hope i have explained this in enough detail

Are you accesing them for some application? or directly firing queries in SSMS/QA?

Don't open table that way, you can check row count in properties page or run t-sql in query window.
