That must be some fairly impressive file you have there.
Suggestions, in no particular order:
1) Give up now.
As Helen says, UTs aren't designed for that amount of verbiage. I've struggled to make a UT that's only a coupla hundred k. You will save yourself hours of fruitless frustration.
Split your file into chunks, and do each one separately. I suggest 5MB to begin with, and adjust as necessary. Accordance has this annoying habit of splitting the UT into sections as you create it, you have to use the little triangle butttons to scroll up and down by section. You can adjust the size of these sections (to a limited degree) in the preferences (as Helen indicates).
Make sure you check where the headings and subheadings go, because Accordance will automatically assign them at the beginning of every section. This often causes an error, because it has made a whole paragraph into a heading and a heading can only be a maximum of X characters long. (I forget the exact number, the App will tell you.)
It's a real PITA but it's better than nothing. Another option is to export your ASCII file to HTML, and encode it with headings, etc, in HTML, but I have limited experience of doing it this way around.
