I need to create a BIG form (59 pages!) and I want to let the user save the content and comeback to edit it later before they finally press 'Submit'.......is that possible?
Also, I want to add a table for the user to complete e.g. I want to have rows of data associated with various columns. For example, I want to ask what payment types the customer accepts and for what e.g.
Payment Guarantee Deposit
Payment Type 1 Yes No No
Payment Type 2 No Yes Yes
I then want the answer given back as a table......is this possible?

Yes, if I understand your question correctly, that should be doable.
Regarding the first question, please see our guide titled How to Save Forms and Continue Later
As to the second query, the matrix tool would be appropriate for that:
The default setting of the matrix (radio buttons) should fit the bill but if you would like assistance with the tool, we'd be happy to help.

This is great - thank you for a VERY prompt response.
With the Matrix, can I have different column types/field lengths? For example, I want the form to collect the follwoing type of information:
Rate Type Effective Date Room Type Availability Single Price Double Price Comments
Best Availalbe 21/12/2013 Double Mon-Fri $150 $200 Max 25 chars

From the data you've provided, it looks like you'll be using all text boxes and it would just be a matter of varying the column widths. I'll see if I can work on the requisite CSS and get back to you.

This sounds great - I am not sure what a CSS is, but if it works I will be happy :-)

CSS is short for Cascading Style Sheets and without it, the internet would be a pretty boring place! Feel free to view the three presentations at the bottom of this page. Currently, CSS only styles visually and aurally but there have been recent experiments with touch (haptics) and smell! So, in the not too distant future, you might have rules containing declarations of touch: rough; or fragrance: jasmine;

Thanks for the explanation. I will check out the presentations. If you could let me have the required CSS for varying the column then I can use that (and not worry too much about mixing the field types).
Thanks for all your help.

As mentioned by Wayne (abajan), you can follow this thread us guide on which CSS code you can use on your form's matrix table field.
This is the guide on how you can inject CSS code to your form.
I created a quick sample form and addedd the CSS codes to customize the matrix texboxes width.
Here is the form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/30586542305957
