I am trying to download only specific patent numbers from the USPTO site. It is an extensive list, however, and I was trying to use the {:file=c:\values.txt} macro but it is causing a memory error that crashes OE. I tried the macro in both the URL area in Project Properties and in URL Substitutes. An example of a page is "http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=4505180.PN.&OS=PN/4505180&RS=PN/4505180". Instead of 4505180, I put the macro which refers to a text file which contains the patent numbers that I need to download. (I put the macro in all three places where the patent number is referenced.) Can you tell me please why this is not working? Some example numbers are:
5448052
5448211
5450041
5451310
5451425

My text file contains many more numbers than this. This is just a sample.

Thank you very much for your help!
