Patent Vault allows users to export search results into a variety of formats, including patent list (.xls and .csv format), patent document full-text (.zip format), and patent document front page (.pdf format).
Click the Export icon, and a window will appear. Select the export type, which items and fields to export, check your export quota, and give the file a name. Then, click on “Export.”
If you are exporting results that have been collapsed by application number or by family, there will be an additional selection for Export Options: Representative Patent Only.
Representative Patent pertains to the first or visible result on the search results page once the collapse feature is activated (refer to the image below).
