I have uploaded two improved tools for viewing SEC filer company taxonomies. Both tools are written using Microsoft Excel 2003. These tools can be found here:
- Taxonomy viewer tool: This tool allows you to select a company and view the company's taxonomy.
- Taxonomy comparison tool: This tool allows you to select two companies and view each taxonomy at the same time, helping you compare the two taxonomies.
The next tool on the list to create is a tool which allows you to compare a company taxonomy with the US GAAP Taxonomy. Although, I will only do this for the Commercial and Industrial entry point.
I would challenge people to understand how to write Excel macros to improve these applications (i.e. add new interesting features) and send them to me and I will make them available to others.
