Dear Richard Managh,
Thanking you for your reply. I have seen FAO on the Internet (1998) Greenstone collection where Phrases browser use AGROVOC thesaurus (attached). I want to do that for my greenstone collection with my thesaurus. Kindly let me know how to do this.

Dear Richard Managh,
Thanking you for your reply and help. My agrovoc database format is
in mysql format. Mainly I would like to use it with Phind phrase browsing for searching. I had installed WAMP (Windows - Apache - MySQL- PHP5) in my c drive and constructed the thesaurus taking agrovac from FAO. I have opened <GSDLHOME>/etc/packages/example.dbi. But I am not clear what next I have to do. Kindly help me.
From looking at the example.dbi it appears that you need to first full out the example.dbi file for your database, and to install
the appropriate back end for mysql, so that perl can talk to your mysql database. These are perl packages you need to add to your perl installation. As part of filling out the example.dbi, you also need to decide what will become a record in your greenstone database, and create an sql query that will get your rows out of the database. These rows will then appear as documents in your collection. I have not needed to use DBPlug before, so am not familiar with exactly how it works. The plugin if configured to be included in your greenstone collection appears to read a *.dbi file (created by you and put in your import directory for the collection) and based on that reads your mysql database and imports your database. I am not sure whether it would be easy to preserve the relationships inherant to relational databases in the built greenstone collection importing the data in this way.
I am not sure exactly what you are trying to achieve, but if you are creating a
