Maximum print width in illustrator

Afternoon all, does anyone know the maximum canvas size in Illustrator? Just gone to set up for a 10mtr banner and its only letting me set maximum size to 5779mm?

This is one of the more laughable aspects of Illustrator, David.
Why is there even a limit at all?
I always work at either 100% or 10%, it keeps everything simple.

Working at this size is ok in Corel as that supports a very big page size BUT you may still run into a limitation when output. Corel will publish to PDF at that size but Reader will only allow upto 5m or thereabouts and will display a blank page although the file is there, can import back into Draw and will display in another Reader ie Nitro. Some RIPS may have the same limitation.
