Basic Procedures

The Basic Procedures section describes how to create taxonomies that contain the most essential components. It is structured as follows:

 

It starts with a brief look at the distinction between new and existing taxonomies and the significance of this distinction. This is followed by an explanation of the files that constitute an XBRL taxonomy and how these are displayed in XBRL View.
Starting with the section Creating a New Taxonomy, we describe, step-by-step, how to build a taxonomy in XBRL View. How to use the New Taxonomy Wizard is also explained in the process. At the end of each section is a set of instructions to guide you with the creation of your own taxonomy in XBRL View. Each set of instructions helps you put into practice or test the information given in that section, and it builds upon the taxonomy created till that point using instructions in previous sections.
