Having trouble converting 4 tables next to each other to XBRL

    Hi Po Chen,

    Thanks for your question. It's a real brain teaser, for sure. I did a little thinking on it and one possible solution, at least for XBRL, might be to actually phantom tag those tables in a non-printing section and arrange that table in a way you want and not tag them in the actual, presented document. You could even potentially format the non-printing section to be landscape instead of portrait and buy yourself some more space for the table's column width. Does this make sense?

    Let me know if you have questions for me on the above, or need anything else. Thank again and have a great day in the meantime. Cheers!

    Hi Mike, appreciate the reply. I realized that I mis-worded the issue. This is in the business section of the 10K and therefore does not need to be XBRL tagged. What I meant was that despite the tables being fine in Workiva and PDF, when I do the "Edger" preview (this is where I mis-worded it, I mentioned XBRL when it really has nothing to do with XBRL), the table wouldn't stay with each other. So this is really critical because the Edger view is what matters. So this issue has more to do with how tables get Edgerized when they are next to each other. Thank you!

    No problem. That makes more sense now :) I have a few ideas for you.
    1. Create a table that is 2 rows and 4 columns. The headings will be in the first row, and then all the text would be in the second row for each corresponding column. You can insert a hard return in the cell with CTRL + Return (Enter) and also format the text within the cell too. This would make the table full length without distorting the text in each column. The full table would also EDGARize as expected.
    2. Create a table that is 4 columns and merge cells (CTRL + M) to achieve the desired result. As you add your text, merge cells as needed to get them to align as you need. The overall row number would depend on how much is added, but it would still EDGARize the whole table.
    3. Create the table in another application, save as an image file and insert that image into your Wdesk document. This method isn't great, as you can't edit the changes on the fly, but it would still work if needed.
    Hope those offer some help. Let me know if you need any clarification on the above, or have other questions. Talk to you soon. Cheers!

    Amazing suggestions. I wonder why I did not think of making it just 1 row. I guess it was because I tried a hard return using Alt + return like in Excel and it didn't work so I thought it is not possible in Workiva. Thank you so much for putting the time into solving this for us.
