Break table

Can I set a table so that when it reaches a certain height it will create another one next to it? In other words, I would like for a table to become several shorter ones instead of a very long one with out manually copying and erasing rows from them?

Thanks.

In newer versions of AutoCAD you can grab a triangular grip in the
bottom middle and control the maximum height, it will automatically
create and maintain the splits, even as you insert/delete rows.

If a newer AutoCAD is not an option, take a look at the Table Tools
section of ToolPac 11.0 at http://www.dotsoft.com/legacy/toolpac.htm
it can split and join your tables in 2006.
