How to make an appendix with only tables without “too many unprocessed floats” errors?

I'm often writing reports containing over 50 tables and over 200 figures that have to be included in appendices. The problem is obvious: if you just make an appendix

\chapter{Tables}
\begin{table}
...
\end{table}

\begin{table}
...
\end{table}
...


at a certain point you get the "too many unprocessed floats" error. I've tried specifying [h], [h!] and so many other variants, but somehow LaTeX doesn't want to agree on just placing them one after the other, and saves them up. My current solution is to add \afterpage{\clearpage} every so often, but this requires me to manually reposition them a number of times before the layout is more or less acceptable.

How should this be done without all the manual manipulations?

If you only have floats, then they don't need to float. Using the H placement offered by the float package is probably the easiest way.

This did the trick. The morefloats package @Yiannis mentioned seems promising as well, but for my problem the H placement is more than enough. thx –  Joris Meys Oct 15 '10 at 11:30

You can also try the morefloats package. The literature also of the package has a number of good solutions for this type of problem.
