    The EXPORT / COPY TO command in Foxpro / Visual Foxpro is based on Excel 5.0 format and can only export 16,384 rows.

    You could export to CSV text if you don't mind losing formatting.

    e.g. COPY TO Export.txt TYPE CSV

    Another option is to install the Visual Foxpro ODBC driver on the client PC and pull the data from the Foxpro DB into Excel using the built in MSQuery tool.

    You could also try exporting to Foxpro2 DFB format which Excel can open up natively.

      Another way is
      COPY TO Export.XLS TYPE XL5

    I believe foxpro can handle dbf database. If that is the case, export it to a dbf database and from excel import it as source for your pivot-table. Double-click on the pivot-table and you will get all the data, provided your Excel version can handle more than 16384 rows of data. But double-clicking step is unnecessary as pivot-tables is the most practical way of managing huge data-sets.
