You can accomplish this using the Data Importer plugin and
specifying to only do a search based on what is in a spreadsheet. You will need
to setup mapping between the spreadsheet and an Adept data field. You can save
the settings as a mapping file and also save a preconfigured spreadsheet to add part
numbers or file names into.
You can look at the Adept user guide for details on
how to use the Data Importer plugin and I have also attached a PDF file outlining how
to use it. I and several of our users here have used this method in the past for
searching up multiple parts and it works well. I hope this helps.
