Generate Documentation

The XBRL | Generate Documentation command generates detailed documentation of the current XBRL taxonomy. You can output the documentation as an HTML, MS Word, RTF, or PDF file. The documentation generated by this command can be freely altered and used; permission from Altova to do so is not required. Documentation is generated for components you select in the XBRL Taxonomy Documentation dialog (which appears when you select the Generate Documentation command). Related components are hyperlinked in the onscreen output, enabling you to navigate from component to component. The various documentation-generation options are described in the section, Documentation Options.

 

Note:In order to generate documentation in MS Word format, you must have MS Word (version 2000 or later) installed.

 

You can either use XMLSpy's fixed standard design for the generated document, or you can use a StyleVision SPS for the design. Using a StyleVision SPS enables you to customize the design of the generated documentation as well as to generate PDF as an additional output format. How to work with an SPS this is explained in the section, User-Defined Design.

 

Note:In order to use an SPS to generate schema documentation, you must have StyleVision installed on your machine.
