Fact properties in XBRL viewer

    Hi Johnathan!

    I'm happy to share my thoughts on what it is you might be seeing. I suspect that what you are seeing is caused by one of two things, if not both. Those are:
    1. Bleed-through
    2. INF accuracy
    First, 'bleed-through' is essentially just added noise that shows up in the SEC XBRL Viewer when an XBRL fact appears in a section but is not actually tagged there. This is common behavior and part of how XBRL is aggregated in the SEC Viewer. More info about this can be found under the Managing XBRL "Noise" segment of this Help article: https://success.workiva.com/help/xbrl-for-sec/xbrl-review-and-filing/sec-xbrl-viewer-faqs.

    That being said, one possible cause is that you might have a value in this section that is tagged with a concept that is also used elsewhere in your document at a different accuracy level. This could cause what you are seeing.

    Secondly, if you are using an INF accuracy on any fact in a section, it will show as a whole number in the SEC Viewer rendering. So even if only one monetary value in the section is set to INF accuracy, all monetary facts will render INF for that section.

    Does all that make sense? Do let me know if you need further clarification on any of the above or need any further help. Thanks for the question, and happy President's Day!

    Hi there- In next Gen, where we can change the fact properties such as date format? We enter PY3 in the document, then select format value. But I nothing comes out that allow us to show PY3 to 3 or three years. Thanks

    Hi Sally!

    In next gen, to change this you need to adjust the Link Formatting, which is on the right-hand panel. For your linked value of P3Y (I see you mentioned PY3, but maybe that was a typo), you can right-click and choose Link Formatting. Then, from that panel make sure that the Format of Period is chosen, and from there you can choose how it displays (3, 3 years, three, etc.).

    Hopefully this helps answer your question. Let me know if you have any follow-ups on the above, or if you need anything else. Thanks much and happy Monday!

    Thanks, I have the typo above. I finally see the link formatting feature after I create the source link.
