XBRL Blackline

    Hi Jon!

    Thanks for the question. Happy to tackle this one for ya.

    In both Classic and next gen, you can only run an XBRL blackline on two generations of the XBRL within the same document. The only way you could compare two periods, as such, is if your very first generation of XBRL is representative of your prior quarter, assuming you rolled forward your document from the prior quarter. In this case, comparing against the first generation would be the same as comparing against what was filed in that quarter. Does that make sense?

    There may also be some softwares or applications available to compare sets of XBRL documents too, but I can't recommend any, per se. Hopefully that helps some. Let me know what questions you have, or if you need anything else. Thanks again and have a great day!
