Scripting tables can indeed be slow. But speeding up "the process" requires rather more knowledge than you've provided of the process you're talking about.
The only way I've been able to reliably speed up table generation is to write the data out in XML (with all formatting and table aids), then import it. You can do very large tables very quickly that way.
It is indeed difficult to answer this question.
What I've done is placing the tables already in
the masterdocument. The only thing I do is
fill in the cells. That's a lot faster that building
the tables scriptable.
Working with XML is also a good idea.
I would like to see a small script illustrating how you write the data to XML and then reimport it. Thanks.
