I've uploaded a new version of PubMed2XL, a Windows application that converts article lists from pubmed.gov into Microsoft Excel files.
If you'd like to use the software you can download it for free.
For those who are interested, here's the changelog:
0.9.1 - worked with Björn Carlsson on a few things: - added length checker for <getElement> so that abstracts greater than 32k characters would get truncated to the first 30k characters. - see: http://blog.humaneguitarist.org/2011/03/16/dealing-with-a-pubmed2xl-bug/ - added <getAttributeByElementPosition> element. - Updated schema. - removed code that displayed the "aboutMessage" variable on the command line if command line options are used. - This is because the diacritic in Mr. Carlsson's name caused encoding errors with the default Windows command prompt. - added <hyperlinkSuffix> element so that alternate views of PubMed data could be passed via the URL. - updated schema. - For example, see this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21069543 then this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21069543?report=medline - The hyperlink suffix of ?report=medline changes the display! - For more information, see: - PubMed Help — PubMed Help — NCBI Bookshelf.

Retrieved November 13, 2010, from http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/manuals/pm_workbook.pdf (see page 135). - updated py2exe "setup.py" to automatically name the command line/console version correctly (i.e. with the "-CL" suffix). - removed "src" folder and placed Python files in same folder as .exe's. _______________________________________________________________________ 0.9.0 - this was the first version - that worked!--------------
