Can I convert my PDF without using my Excel template?

The short answer is yes, although if you upload your PDF in the the ParsePort Inspector portal without a mapped Excel file and press convert the final file is not an iXBRL file. Instead, you will get an xHTML version of your PDF file, which may be needed if you are reporting non-consolidated figures.
