UI performance and large data set in Table Object

To be frank, Rev's native table object leaves an awful lot to be desired. 
Quite a few people on this list ended up writing their own table object
instead.  I wrote one with resizable columns and column-click sorting that
was based on a normal scrolling field.  It was lightening fast with
thousands of rows.  

Chipp has made his table control publicly available:
http://www.altuit.com/webs/altuit2/RunRevArchived/Archives.htm and look for
'altFldHeader Control'.  It may well turn out that this serves your needs
better than Rev's table object.
