Approval button not showing on GedCompare Report

I have just spent more than four hours going through the gedcompare report for one quarter of my family tree that I have on my pc, I am ready to approve the import.  However, I cannot see an approval button.

 

Looking at the help section for Gedcoms is confusing me just a little.  It states on there "GEDCOMs with more than 2,500 people cannot be imported."  Mine has 2,097.

What have I done wrong?  I don't want to spend another 4+ hours doing it all again.

Forgot to also mention that I have signed up to the Honour code, which I believe was a previous answer to this problem way back in 2014/15.

Hi Kay!  You might have other problems like pre-1700 profiles.  Did you read through these instructions?  http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/GEDCompare#What_should_you_do_if_some_people_in_your_file_were_born_prior_to_1700_AD.3F  Maybe that will help you find the problem.

Hi Kitty,

I went back and skipped all those born prior to and including 1700 (there were more than I thought, lol) but still no button.
I sent an email to Kay but just so anyone who happens to read this question knows what the holdup is...

Our system only allows for up to 500 suggested matches in one import. Kay's file has more then that which is why it says "too large".  She'd need to split it into much smaller segments to be able to import it.

Thanks! :)
