File Wrapper - Total Number of Office Actions (FWM_OA_CT)

File Wrapper - Total Number of Office Actions (FWM_OA_CT) searches for the total number of office actions in the file wrapper of an application or patent.  In other words, if the file wrapper has 3 office actions, such as two non-final rejections and a final rejection, and you search for FWM_OA_CT:3, the application or patent with this file wrapper will be one of the applications or patents returned with the search result.  

Examples

  • FWM_OA_CT:[20 to *]  -->  Query matches all US patents or applications where the total number of office actions in the file wrapper is 20 or more.  This is a rare case and probably means that the applications are very important to the applicant/original assignee.
  • FWM_OA_CT:[* to 4] --> Query matches all US patent and applications where the total number of office actions in the file wrapper is 4 or less.
