With the XBRL Export Instance - Spec. 1 report, you can export the required financial reporting information in XML format from an XBRL Specification 1 Taxonomy. You can also post the XML file on your company's Web site and with some coding in Visual Basic you can present it in a printed document format on the Web site.
If you want to add more filters, you can select additional fields on the XBRL Taxonomy Line tab. To do this, in the Field field, press F3, click the AssistButton and then select the relevant fields. You can set filters on any of the fields. If you do not set any filters, the document will include all your records.
To print the Instance Document, click Print. To see the Instance Document on screen, click Preview.
To filter the information in the report, fill in the relevant fields as follows:
