Altova XMLSpy 2020 Enterprise Edition

The XBRL Validation tab (screenshot below) offers options for XBRL instance validation.


The validation options that you can specify are:


Checks for conformance with Dimensions 1.0 and Units Registry 1.0.

Reports of calculations that involve (i) inconsistencies when summation items are calculated, (ii) assertions that are unsatisfied.

Non-consideration of duplicates (complete duplicates and consistent duplicates) that are involved in calculations. Where a fact is duplicated, the most precise fact is used, while the others are ignored.

Reports of duplicates. For more information about how duplicates are classified, see the Handling Duplicate Facts in XBRL and Inline XBRL 1.0 specification.

Normalization of whitespace in Inline XBRL, which refers to the handling of whitespace (space characters, tabs, line feeds, and carriage returns).

oIf Extended whitespace normalization is selected, then non-breaking spaces are also considered to be whitespace.

oPreserve leaves whitespace unchanged.

oTrim removes whitespace on both sides of strings.

oReplace all occurrences of tab, linefeed, and carriage return are replaced by a space.

oCollapse is an extension of Replace in that a replace is carried out, and then all contiguous spaces are collapsed to a single space.
