Thumbs up Problem Importing FoxPro File...

I'm using MS Access 97 and I'm trying to import a FoxPro "dbf" file. When I try to import, I get the message "Cannot access the FoxPro 3.0 bound DBF file ...(filename)". Now, I thought the file was a FoxPro 3.0 file, but the extension is dbf, not dbc and the file only shows up when I choose files of type "FoxPro (*dbf)" format and not "FoxPro 3.0 (*dbc)". Does that make any sense?

Try opening the .dbf file in Excel or other program that supports opening the .dbf format or make use of following way in case .dbf file severely corrupted https://onlinefilerepair.com/en/dbf-repair-online.html DBF files Online repair service

Once opened in Excel you should be able to view the file, delete any "bad data", and resave to a new name (with the .dbf extension).

Also possible to create a new table with the structure of the old table, append records from the old to the new. May salvage records until the corruption is encountered.
