Document Type Field (DT)
The DT field code divides your search into patents and applications. There are two acceptable values for the DT field code:
- G --> Grants (granted patents)
- A --> Applications
Note that Document Type (DT) field code works on all international patents. By contrast, the Patent Type (PT) field code works only on US documents.
DT:G --> Returns only granted patents. The granted patents are from across all jurisdictions.
DT:A --> Returns only applications. The applications are from across all jurisdictions.
