XBRL: Seldom Used But More SEC FAQs


This CFO.COM article indicates finance executive make little use of the SEC’s XBRL filings.  In fairness I would say that SEC registrants felt the same about EDGAR when it first came out, but look at its utility today.  So maybe there is hope.  The SEC has however updated its XBRL FAQs.  The new FAQs are annotated “(New 02/05/2013)”.  Most of the FAQs are technical in nature and are oriented towards those that prepare the XBRL filings.
