    Like improper system shutdown, virus attack, modification in hex-editor, and application malfunction. When the DBF file header gets corrupted due to any of the above reasons, the file becomes unreadable or inaccessible. Moreover, a user encounters an error message while opening the file, which happens in your case.

    You can use following solutions to overcome DBF file header corruption:

    1) Restore the file from a valid backup copy.
    2) In case of no backup, you needs to repair the corrupted DBF file by using third party DBF Repair Software.
