    Breaking a large table into small ones?


    Hello,

    I would like to know how many rows before people break a table containing large rows down to many horizontal tables you recommend?For examples, a phone company that covers entire U.S., do they use one table for each state? Or The US Social Security Department, do they use one table for each state?

    Thanks,
    John

    It looks like telcos will soon have one table per household...
    IMHO, it makes sense splitting info when you don't accessing particular parts too often. Archive, if you will.
    And you know I mean that.
