Landscape tables across many portrait pages - is it possible?

FM 2015 on Win 7.

I have a letter sized document with an 11 column table in it. It's in portrait format just like the page, and flows over 5 pages.

It's very cramped though and I'd like to make the table to be in landscape format, and flow over several pages.

I've been experimenting with Anchored Frames with rotated text boxes inside them, but they are only good for tables that fit on 1 page. I suppose I could chop the table up and insert Anchored Frames with rotated text boxes on several pages, but that would be a pain to maintain.

Is this possible in FrameMaker 2015 to have Landscape tables in portrait pages that flows over pages?
