          You would appear to be in table view. There's an upper limit to how many fields can be displayed at one time in table view and 75 fields is about right to reach that limit. (The limit is actually a specific number of pixels so narrow columns allow you to view more than if you have wide columns.)

          You can always add more fields in Manage | database | Fields and you can either resize your columns, remove some from view using the modify button or you can create a new layout for displaying columns that don't fit on the first layout.
