I am using this line to open a dbf file:

Dim db As Database
Dim rs As Recordset
Set db = OpenDatabase("Z:\aloha\vb\dbf\", True, False, "dBASE IV;")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Select * From ITM.DBF Order By ID")

Do While Not rs.EOF
rs.Fields("SHORTNAME")

ETC....ETC....ETC...

The code works great if the database has 255 or less Fields.  How can I load a dbf file that has more than 255 fields.  

I am using VB6pro

Thanks in advanced.

Does it work if you list the only some of fields in the Select?

e.g. "Select Field1, Field2  From ITM.DBF Order By ID"


Have you tried ADO instead of DAO?
