    Many MapInfo Pro users are discovering the freedom of working with tables larger than 2GB with the "extended" tab format (aka NativeX).  The explosion of data is making the 2GB limit in the 32 bit versions of MapInfo Pro a bigger issue all the time.

    Lamont Norman has written this post in the "Data Sandbox" that gives some great examples of the power of the NativeX file format with very large data sets.  Check it out and feel free to share any good stories that you have in this discussion.

    If you haven't tried version 17 of MapInfo Pro, try the free download and try it yourself!
