New Enterprise Edition with batch conversion

In this release Altova has introduced a new Enterprise Edition for the EBA XBRL Add-in for Excel. The existing product has been renamed Basic Edition and includes all previous functionality.

The Enterprise Edition introduces a new button in the EBA tab of the Excel ribbon that allows for batch conversion of EBA XBRL reports into Excel documents.

Files are still validated during batch conversion, with any errors reported at the end of the conversion process.

This functionality has been requested by customers working with larger numbers of files and provides an easy, fast way to automate batch conversions between EBA XBRL and Excel.

New COM API in Enteprise Edition

The new Enterprise Edition also introduces a COM API that can be used to programmatically automate data entry, facilitate proper editing of the Excel/XBRL document, as well as automate the creation of EBA XBRL reports, which can potentially help to reduce data entry errors. The COM API can be used from within Excel’s macro language, as well as from programming languages that support interacting with Excel and accessing COM objects programmatically, such as VBA or .NET languages.

Support for Deutsche Bundesbank (BBK) Taxonomy

Many European countries have defined custom modifications to the EBA Taxonomy. Altova has added the BKK Taxonomy from Germany to the list of local taxonomies supported in the EBA XBRL Add-in for Excel. These are available as a free download on the EBA XBRL Add-in page.
