Working With NYC Category Limit During Importing

If you bump up against NYC's 200 category limit while importing large Meal-Master files, try these useful work-arounds:

Before importing...
1.  Delete empty (Recipes...Categories...Find Empty...Delete) categories in your cookbook .
2.  Delete meaningless categories in your cookbook from previous imports (e.g., "my stuff", "Aunt Em's", "new ones").
3.  Create a new cookbook (File...New Cookbook...) and import into it, rather than into your main cookbook.
4.  Use a text editor to break the import file into smaller files, then import each file into a new cookbook.
