Have you read the OpenLDAP Admin Guide?  Are you following it?
In particular, did you try following the Quick Start Guide?

How to use LDAP Browsers is a topic for another list
(one specific to the browser you are using).

I suggest you first learn how to use OpenLDAP-provided LDAP
clients, such as ldapsearch(1).  Then you should be able
to easily translate your gained knowledge to non-OpenLDAP
clients, such as whatever LDAP Browser you intend to use,
on your own (or with the assistance of those supporting
that software).
