    The Running Reports dialog box displays the list of successfully completed reports and errors, if any exist.

    Running Reports


    You can store maximum of 50 reports at time.

    After you update the Disclosure Management High–Volume XBRL client, you may not able to view the previously stored reports in the Running Reports dialog. Oracle recommends that you download the results and archive it in a different location, which helps you to view the report results even after updating the software. However, the Running Reports dialog box is not meant for long term storage.

    (Optional): After the report has finished, click Download to download a the zipped file containing the XBRL instance and a validation log.

    (Optional): You can delete a report. Select a report in the Running Reports dialog box, and then click Delete.


    You can delete only Completed and Failed status reports.

    (Optional): You can cancel a report from running at the background. Select a report in the Running Reports dialog, and then click Cancel.

    Publishing the instance produces a zipped file that contains a file with an extension *.xbrl. This is the XBRL instance that was generated, which can be validated using Arelle or Regulator.
