How To Generate a Fact List

One of the things your auditor will likely ask for, is a list of the taxonomy elements used in your report along with certain key pieces of information related to the different elements.

Instead of having you create such a list manually, the ParsePort XBRL Inspector allows you to generate and download such a list, which is called a fact list.

What is a fact list?

A fact list is a list of every taxonomy element used in your report along with information about each element such as label, taxonomy name, unit, value, balance, period type, item type, decimals, scale, and the beginning and end of the period.
