Espacenet does not offer any patent number or search strategy importing functions (beyond allowing a search on up to ten document numbers at one time). The service does, however, offer data export, described in the next section of this article, Export Functions.
It was once speculated that these limitations were maintained as another way to avoid competition with commercial providers of patent data.
