In Ms Access

File>get external data>Import

Yes you will loose the indexes you will need to create new indexes in Access.

If you use File>get external data>Link tables

The data will stay in the DBF but be accessible from Access as if it where an Access table. The Indexes will be maintained.

As per David M., and ...

You might test with: Memo fields, General fields, Structural indexes, Candidate indexes etc.
