Cause

This error is generated because the resulting .tab-based table exceeds the 2 Gig. limit for native .tab formatted tables. 

Resolution

UPDATED: March 23, 2018
The upcoming release of MapInfo Pro 17.0 has a new version of the Universal Translator that now supports the "NativeX" (also known as "Extended") format tables, which do not have the 2 Gig. limit.
