Is anyone aware of a maximum threshold of tables allowed in a Mac Word 98 document -- or a maximum number of rows per table? I've spent the past several weeks working on a document which is now pushing 80 pages, and I have about 15 tables inside the document. One table alone has at least two hundred rows. Yesterday the document choked again, as it has four times since I've started working on it. It freezes the system. I want to use tables for cleaner formatting (and hope that our upcoming migration to Framemaker makes this a moot issue), but meanwhile, am growing increasingly frustrated at the mysterious "something" that keeps making this document crash and burn.
