Exporting in PatBase Express is simple to use, but limited in functionality. The user reaches the export page by clicking on the "Export" icon in the hit list or the "Export my list" link in the My List page. From there, the user has the option to export the family record in a variety of formats such as MS Word 2000-2003, RTF, HTML, PDF, CSV, XML, Excel spreadsheet, HTML table, RIS (option only available from hit list export), or BizInt Smart Charts Data File. If the export option is selected from the hit list, the user must also select how many records to export (default 1-50). One should note that the data exported is the PatBase record information (including the abstract for the representative document), not the actual patent full-text such as the claims. The one exception occurs when using the "Other" format and exporting to file types such as CSV or XLS; in that case, the claims (for the representative document) will appear in a column.
The user may also export the individual record while viewing the record within Express. This includes any member within the patent family. The user selects which full text information to include by choosing check boxes beside individual family members. Express exports the entire record which consists of the PatBase record information and the entire full-text of the selected family documents. Data is exported in either HTML or MS Word 2000-2003 format.
PatBase Express contains two methods of document delivery from the individual record page not yet discussed. The first is a link to email the record. This feature allows the user to send a link to an email account showing the complete record being viewed, along with a message describing the record. This link remains active for 14 days. The second method is a print page option, allowing the user to print out the complete bibliographic record.
