XBRL Report Editor - XBRLizer(+)

XBRL Report Editor

Reporting Standard has developed the easiest- to- use XBRL informs editor in the market.

This new editor uses the same user’s interface our XBRL Report Viewer uses.

The Report Builder XBRLizer+ works as a spreadsheet where, clicking on a cell, provides automatically all the necessary information, that is, company’s name, reporting period, associated dimensions , measurement units or currency. All these data can be edited and changed later manually, or the tool will be prompt the user in the case the value is not automatically detected.

Our XBRL editor, allows to visualize all the details of the concepts used in the instance, like:

  • All different labels associated to each concept
  • Presentation structures, main and subordinated elements
  • Calculation structures, dependent and/or contributor elements
