Sorry for the late response. The problem still exists in current version of EPIC v5.4 M080. However, it just doing a better job, but didn't completely fixed the problem.

Style Sheet: FOSI
Publishing Egine: Print Composer
License Type: Fixed
The problem was reported multiple times to Arbortext Support, but was told that the table row/col issue, that I am having, is limited by the amount of data that the publishing engine can handle. It was recommended to leave the adaptable variable value: deepcontentsplitting to off
No I have not submitted this questions to adepters. I don't know what that is, sorry.
Thanks again for the response.
Adepters recently had a discussion about this. I believe it was tied to eliminating the <thead> from the table.
