Support: Creating Reports from Databases/Hosts

Creating from Questel/Orbit

BizInt Smart Charts for Patents can build charts from search results from Questel using Orbit.com, the command line interface, or QPAT.

Instructions are provided for Orbit.com, the command line and for QPat.

Beginning in version 3.6.3, legal status information from Questel is imported into your report. This page describes how BizInt Smart Charts for Patents extracts legal status information from the ACT field in FAMPAT or from the LGST database when looking at publications from PLUSPAT.

 

Orbit.com - Step by Step

  1. Conduct your search on Orbit.com.
  2. Select the records you want to export and bring up the Export menu. Choose the BizInt Export option, as pictured below:
