Hi Oscar,

As John says, editing the FDT file that you've copied into Greenstone
will change the fields that ISISPlug will import into the collection. Be
careful to keep the edited FDT file separate from the original version,
however, and always use the original version when editing the database
in CDS/ISIS.

Regards,

Michael
