This section describes commands available in the WIP ribbon (see screenshot below). The WIP commands are organized into four groups: WIP Report, Import/Export, Windows, and WIP Add-in. For more information, see the subsections below.
Creates a new WIP report. This command is disabled if the WIP report sheet has already been inserted into the workbook.
This command has the following options:
•The Reset WIP Report Data option discards (deletes) any data entered in the sheets WIP In Process or WIP Completed and returns the Excel formulas to their default state. A confirmation dialog box prompts you for confirmation before data is discarded.
•The Restore only formulas option restores the Excel formulas to their default state, without deleting any data.
For details, see Reset Data and Restore Formulas.
When selected, this option adds the WIP Completed sheet to the current workbook. This may be necessary if you want to report the completed WIP in addition to the WIP In Progress data.
Validates WIP data against the underlying XBRL US WIP taxonomy and displays validation results in the Validation Report.
Imports an existing XBRL WIP instance file into the current Excel spreadsheet. See Import Data from Existing WIP Report.
Imports data from custom WIP workbooks by means of predefined templates. See Templates.
Generates an XBRL WIP instance file from the data entered into the WIP report. See Export Data to XBRL.
Shows or hides the WIP Report Pane. By default, the WIP Report Pane is visible.
Shows or hides the Validation Report window. See Validate Data.
Displays a dialog box where you can view and change the add-in settings.
This command opens the XBRL Taxonomy Manager tool, which allows viewing, installing, and uninstalling XBRL taxonomies. See XBRL Taxonomy Manager.
Checks with the Altova server whether a newer version than yours is currently available and displays a message accordingly.
Displays the activation status of the add-in and provides options to enter or purchase a license key code.
Displays information about the add-in version.
Provides links to the Altova website, including the Online Support Center, XBRL Taxonomy Download Center, training and tutorials.
The Help command opens the add-in's Help documentation (its user manual). By default, the Online Help in HTML format on the Altova website will be opened.
If you do not have Internet access or do not want, for some other reason, to access the Online Help, you can use the locally stored version of the user manual. The local version is a PDF file named WIP Add-in.pdf that is stored in the application folder (in the Program Files folder). If you want to change the default format of the user manual, you can do this in the Misc section of the Settings dialog.
