Do you have text fields in the data - especially fields that may contain special characters?

You can import a lot of data from excel - for example, I just loaded a test data set with 4401 records:

Loading data from clipboard, please wait...
First line: (clipboard) id n m q r w t u c d e f g h i j k l m
Separator: Tab (tab: 79236)(semicolon: 0)(comma: 0)(space: 0) Lines: 4402 (incl. field names)
File name :from clipboard
Fields: 19 Total records: 4401 Included: 4401

I you can import 50 lines, then I suspect there is a problem with one of the records that follows.

if you want me to try to diagnose the problem, you can send your .rec and .chk files to me

I'll have a look and then delete everything, including the e-mail.
