I agree but :
1)how can I maintain Table as a list  even if its bounds are not defined?
2)if it is not possible how can I replace Table by a function that has the same meaning but can works with symbolic bounds?

I'd guess that Max saw only one argument (the Table, which is not a list at that point, as N is not defined), and the Max of one thing is that thing.
