06. Exportar de WebAGRIS a la base de datos de AGRIS
The following steps outline how the AGRIS AP XML output can be produced by the WebAGRIS system:
1. Identify the records to be exported by using the advanced search feature of WebAGRIS and executing a search.
Some tips for AGRIS centres:
Within the WebAGRIS application you can go to the advanced search feature and select all completed records (STAT=C) by date of input YYYYMM (example 200605 for May 2006), keeping track of the last exported record.
In the new WEBAGRIS version 2.0 there is a new filter that ensures exporting of the records which are marked as "AGRIS record" during data entry.
After the search is completed in the Search system and the results are visualized, click "Export All" to export all results or "Export Selected" to export selected records.
In the "Download results" window, select "Predefined export format", then select "AGRIS AP XML" and press the "Download" button.
Once the "Download" button is clicked, the system will ask you to open or save the file. The default extension given to the file is .xxx. This choice has been done in order to allow the system to prompt the user and not to automatically open the file with the software assigned to the xml extension. This was also done for resolving encoding parameter problem that may occurs.
Save this file with a name for the current batch and rename it extension to '*.xml'
Send the exported XML file to AGRIS-Input@fao.org or, preferably, if there are several records, use the FTP site.
It is also possible to validate the resulting XML file against the AGRIS AP XML DTD using a vali-dation tool (for example XMLSpy). The latest DTD can be downloaded at http://purl.org/agmes/agrisap/dtd/
The DGroups, discussion fora, have been set up for the WebAGRIS. DGroups is an online platform offering tools and services that bring individuals and organisations together in the international development community.
To subscribe to WebAGRIS discussion group register at DGroups
All centres are also invited to study the AGRIS AP User Guide.
