Reporting Standard presents their new XBRL tools
We started the year by publishing a new version of the Standard Reporting XBRL tools. This new version incorporates exciting new features with the aim of improving user experience.
Both 32 and 64 bit windows environments
In order to allow the user to make more efficient use of the resources, we release two specific versions for machines working in Windows 32-bit or 64-bit environments.
Convert your XBRL reports into Excel
The ability to export a report to Excel XBRL has been present in the RS tools from earlier versions, however this feature was limited to the ability to export the current view of the user’s work, which meant extra work when composing a full report. From this version all this extra work disappears, allowing the user to select the views to export from the report to the Excel file, including of course, the possibility of exporting the full report at once.
Additionally the user can individually customise each view, giving control over the final appearance of the exported report.
Create Excel reports from XBRL, now easier than ever
It has significantly improved the process of creating mapping templates in Excel. So far, the mapping procedure needed user intervention to determine how the link between the Excel cells and concepts of XBRL report was made. This new version perform these bindings automatically, freeing the user from a task that in some cases can be tedious. Besides, users will avoid errors attributable to the human factor.
