Assigning the Taxonomy to the Map Numbers

Elements of the taxonomy need to be assigned to map numbers to be fully integrated into Working Papers. These assignments only need to be performed once. The assignments are stored in the DM database and can be shared with other client files by doing a Copy Components.

When this step is completed, the XBRL tags are automatically available where ever the map numbers are used in a CaseView document. Performing this step can greatly simplify adding XBRL tags to any CaseView document.

Some entries in XBRL taxonomies are too long to be displayed fully in the drop-down menus where they are selected. A ToolTip is now displayed for these items to provide the full name of the XBRL object that is currently selected in the drop-down.

  1. In the Tools tab, select Map XBRL Taxonomy. The Select Taxonomy dialog appears.

  2. (Optional) Select to copy a taxonomy to the client file. Working Papers creates a "Taxonomy" subdirectory in the client file and places a copy of the taxonomy currently being mapped in that file.
  3. In the list, highlight the taxonomy you wish to use. Click Next. The Map Taxonomy Elements dialog appears.

  4. Select a role from the Unmapped Taxonomy Elements by Role drop-down menu.

  5. In the left pane, drilldown and highlight the taxonomy item.

  6. In the right pane, drilldown and highlight the map number to be associated with the taxonomy item.
  7. Click Map. Once assigned, the taxonomy item is no longer bolded in the Unmapped XBRL Elements pane. You can assign more than one XBRL element to any map number, but only one map number to any XBRL element.

Note: To reverse any item assigned to a map number, click the assigned item in the right hand pane and click Unmap.

  1. Repeat steps 2 to 5 for each of the items in the taxonomy you wish to associate with a map number. When all the assignments are completed, click Finish.

Note: The taxonomy items may not match completely with your mapping structure and it may be necessary to make modifications as required.

Your taxonomy is now assigned to the map numbers in your file.
