Understanding Where Digital Financial Reporting Can Go

I put together another handful of queriesusing 28msec's SECXBRL.info web service.  These are not perfect, but you can get a really good idea where digital financial reporting is headed. 

As you look at the queries, think about what it takes to get this information from an XBRL-based public company financial report.  If you need some guidance understanding that, read this blog post which walks you through exactly that. As Mike Starr, head of the XBRL US Data Quality Committee puts it, the ultimate determination of quality comes from the ability to actually make use of information.

I think this stuff is getting pretty good.  What do you think?
