Maybe you can find a machine with more built-in memory?

Older versions and Mac versions used to have a (registry) setting for the
amount of memory Word reserved for itself, but I don't suppose that still
exists.
Maybe you'll find tips that work for you in the MS knowledge base, say:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827101
or in this MVP article:
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/apperrors/...ientmemory.htm
Especially follow the instructions to clean out stray temporary files...
They may not be involved, but a bit of spring cleaning can't hurt.

If you do not have paragraph marks and tabs within cells, merged cells, or
nested tables, try copying the table into Excel. Once sorted you can copy it
back into Word.
