Violation: unusedFootnote

XBRL footnotes are used to provide additional information about the tagged data. If you receive the error message Violation: "unusedFootnote", it means that the file in question contains one or more orphaned footnotes. An orphaned footnote is a footnote that has not been linked to any tagged data, which may cause interpretive problems.
