***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear Peter, I suggest using edgelists rather than full matrices. The best way to get started is to create a little (say N=10) dymmy dataset in UCINET, and export it in all possible DL formats. Then see which format is that you can most eaily create with your data. If you really must use full matrices, try SPSS. The data editor works with a 1000 X 1000 matrix, and even bigger. But, you will see, moving to edgelists make life so much easier.
