In the China County-level Data on Provincial Economic Yearbooks, each of the DBF files has its meaning, such as 1990B1.dbf is about the General Survey. But when I open the file, all the item names are given as sequential number codes, such as B1990001, B1990002, B1990003. I want to know about each item's name -- what's the value meaning?

An explanation of the variables is available at http://citas.csde.washington.edu/data/provyrbk/datasets.htm.  The Thematic Data Tables link provide information about the data variables, just click on each of the data category name.
