    What program are you using to edit the database?

    If i do any edit on this file than software not opening

    Hopefully your attempt to edit this file was done on a COPY of the original file or at least you made a Backup of the original file before you attempted to edit the file.

    If not then you might have created a real problem.

    A Foxpro/Visual Foxpro (FP/VFP) file has a specific file header at the low level and if that is corrupted, then the file will no longer be recognized as a FP/VFP file any longer.

    Assuming that you still have a GOOD copy of the file, your best option would be to get a copy of Foxpro/Visual Foxpro and use it to edit the contents.
    If you did that and needed assistance in how to do the Edit, we would be happy to help you.

    Good Luck

    When I un-zipped your dbf file and then opened it in Visual Foxpro, I found 1 record in it that, when I exported it to a Text File, looked like:

    "RAHUL MEDICALS","SHOP NO-7, HOUSING BOARD","SHOPING CENTRE,","NR K.F.T.Z","GANDHIDHAM","370230","20 GBK 278","21 GBK 278","","","24011003546",/ /,"",/ /,"253753","","","PSS"

    So, what is the problem?

    Good Luck

    On further analysis of your dbf file at the HEX Header level it appears that it was created in a VERY OLD version of Foxpro: FoxBASE+/Dbase III plus, no memo

    With that in mind, you should be able to open it with almost any version of Foxpro (2.5 or 2.6) or Visual Foxpro (VFP 6, 7, 8, or 9) - I'd personally recommend a version of Visual Foxpro

    You should be able to get yourself a copy of it at:
    foxpro in Software | eBay

    Good Luck

    I don't think there is any problem to open this dbf file.

    Please apply following command

    FoxPro

    use fa12.dbf
    browse

    thanks
