Version 2023 Release 2 of the Altova ESEF XBRL add-in for Excel was announced on April 12, 2023. Learn about all the new features below and update to the latest version.
ESEF reports are based on company-specific extensions to a base ESEF XBRL taxonomy. Prior to tagging ESEF reports, companies can create an extension taxonomy using XBRL development tools like XMLSpy. Now, it is also possible to design an extension taxonomy to use for tagging directly in the ESEF XBRL add-in for Excel.
In the ESEF tab of the Excel ribbon, users will find a new Taxonomy Editor button that lets them easily select a location-specific entry point and create a custom extension taxonomy. The extension taxonomy is defined in a visual way that shields the user from the underlying XBRL syntax.
Core details are easily specified, and presentation and calculation linkbase tabs let the user drag and drop to add tables.
The ESEF add-in will save the extension taxonomy as a taxonomy package, which will then allow for the creation of ESEF XBRL reports directly in Excel.
This easy extension taxonomy editor makes the Altova ESEF add-in for Excel the only tool companies need to create valid ESEF XBRL reports in an easy, user-friendly way.
