Yes. Don't use table fields. They are not real tables, but only a way
to get a text field to kind of act like it wants to be a table when it
There are some quite usable solutions people have developed using
scripts to get a series of fields to look and act like a real table,
but the issue is always going to be large data sets. If it's just a
few columns of a few hundred rows of data you are probably going to be
fine. If it's 50 columns of 35,000 rows yer gonna weep.
One of the huge (IMHO) feature requests for Revolution is a real table
object that acts like a basic spreadsheet or database table. For some
reason this has been set aside as not very important. But I would pay
good money for a Revolution update that had real table objects
complete with scripting commands for manipulating rows and columns of
data. I am not asking for a built in spreadsheet. I just want to be
able to tab between cells, select rows and columns, and detect when
and where in the table cells someone has clicked.
