You should post your question on a site that specializes in dbf files. SQLTeam.com is for Microsoft SQL Server.

It looks like Foxpro is looking for file header to identify file is a a Valid dbf file or not. If it does not find the file then it will generate the above error message.

To fix this file, you can use tool like Stellar Phoenix DBF Repair that fixes corruption in dbf file.
