That just means that the table is too big to be meaningful in a
presentation. We have all been at presentations where someone
presented a 15X5 table and the result was just a grey blur on the
screen that nobody could read. Moreover, you don't want your 

audience to try to grasp 75 numbers and their interrelations while
you are talking. I would stick to a 2X2 or 3X3 table maximum for a

presentation. Anything requiring more rows or columns should be 

graphed. Alternatively add a footnote saying that there were many
other control variables added to your model but that you are not
displaying them.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
