XBRL Support
Is XBRL formatted data supported for input (Benchmarks) and Output (reports)?

Thanks for your support,

Sure, you can load benchmarks from XBRL data. PMF metric (actuals, targets, etc) need to come from an indexable format, so recommend you stage the data in a relational table. XML is not indexable.

Reporting from XBRL is, of course, somethign WebFOCUS can do. Don't see how it specifically has anything to do with PMF - there are no additional requirements. A report off XBRL data will by nature not be a "pmf" report, since "pmf" reports are WebFOCUS reports from the PMF data mart.

If you mean, can reports be output to XBRL, WebFOCUS can only read XBRL report; it cannot write reports with XBRL output. However, you can generate XBRL as an outbound transform using iWay technology...
