Limits in the Number of Table Variables

Case Listing tables are limited to 50 sort variables. There is no limit on the number of column variables in a Case Listing session.

You can specify up to eight page variables, five row variables, and five column variables. The amount of data that can be presented in a table is limited as follows:

  • 256,000 rows per page
  • 256,000 columns per page
  • 1,024,000 cells per page
  • 256,000 pages per matrix
