Altova® EBA add-in for Excel, version 2022 Enterprise Edition

Installation of XBRL Taxonomies

Home Prev Top Next

When you install the add-in for the first time on your computer, only the most recent version of the EBA XBRL Taxonomy is installed by default. If you need support for other EBA XBRL Taxonomy versions or country-specific XBRL taxonomies, you need to install them separately. Specifically, you can install, upgrade, or uninstall XBRL taxonomies on demand, using the XBRL Taxonomy Manager tool included in the add-in.


To run the XBRL Taxonomy Manager, do one of the following:


In the EBA ribbon, click Manage Taxonomies.

Double-click the file with the .altova_taxonomies extension downloaded from the Altova website. To open the XBRL Taxonomy Download Center in your browser, select the EBA ribbon. Then click Altova on the Web | Taxonomy Download.

From the Windows Control Panel, right-click the Altova Taxonomy Manager entry and select Change or Uninstall from the context menu.


After you complete the installation of Altova® European Banking Authority (EBA) XBRL add-in for Excel, the check box Invoke Altova Taxonomy Manager is available on the last page of the installation wizard.


Note the following:


Installing or uninstalling a taxonomy from XBRL Taxonomy Manager takes effect for all user accounts on the same computer.

Installing or uninstalling a taxonomy from XBRL Taxonomy Manager takes effect in all Altova XBRL-enabled applications installed on the same computer.

If the current taxonomy has dependencies on other taxonomies, the dependent taxonomies are also installed (or uninstalled, as applicable).


For more information, see Manage XBRL Taxonomies.
