    You can't.

    Are you SURE you need them all? Many design flaws cause field numbers to be too high.

    A workaround: create many tables and relate them with a 1:1 relationship.

    Renaming thread title, it appears completely unrelated to the question.

    And StarTrekker is more than likely correct here.

    I've never come across a design (ever!) that has needed >255 columns in a single table.

    Can you describe the table and what you're trying to achieve, sounds like you have a bit of a bit design flaw.
