there's a limit on the dell support site of 500 in "My Systems and Peripherals."  Also, not all dmidecode executables understand -s.

You can do what we did.  Run a script to get all the service tags, and
build that info into a csv file, login into support, create a my systems
list and you can import that list.  It will then show what is left based
on that's day's running, you can then export it back out as a csv file
and extract it.

At the same time you have them all together in a file and online with
much more info in a usable format.

There is also a way to then import additional ones (which we do once a
month).

Yes not a script but not much work either with many benefits.

ok thanks to all:) i think that the only way is to build a custom script
that will read info from dell site, we hope to share it with all in the
next days

Thanks
