I have a DBF with 503 fields. Just I got this no of fields when I open it thru dBase V. Even I am able to oven as a Non dbase file and in read only mode. Just I want to know how it is possible to create such huge DBF. I also want to query the DBF with VB or VFP. Anyone please help me in this regard.

I thought that Visual FoxPro 9.0 would open a DBF with that many fields, but I may be wrong.
You may need to find someone that still has the (MS-DOS based) tools that will correctly access that kind of file, and ask them to move the contents (data) to some mutually agreed format such as XML, CSV, or tab-delimited.
You may also be able to import it directly into excel, using one of the foxpro/dbase ODBC drivers, and then save it as a csv ...
