I'm always curious where the data come from to make a large table. That is, are you
set on formatting a static table by hand or does the data come from some other source?
Depending on the situation, it may be worthwhile to generate the latex and incorporate
it into your document as an included file. You can use anything from bash scripts to c++
or whatever fits in. Would something like that work here with simple table and tabular?
