Re: Confusing interface for "NOT" within advanced search graphical interface

Dear user, It is indeed true that the use of the NOT operator is not so straightforward at first sight in the advanced search. The rule is that the excluded term should always be put at the end of the query. Also, the maximum number of NOT operators per query is 1. For some queries, it might be easi...

You can check it with the following query: (cl = "Y02P60/21" AND cl = "A01G31/06") AND pd within "2016-2020" AND pa = "agrilution" However, Espacenet onl...

Re: filter vs. query

Dear user, Thank you for your question. There is a difference in the number of results because the field identifier "cl" searches for both the CPC and IPC symbols. For example, a search for cl=H02K1 AND dual-rotor AND 2020 or for (cpc=H02K1 OR IPC=H02K1) AND dual-rotor AND 2020 gives the same result...
