Hi,

I made a custom taxonomy using the excel sheet and I have an element for which, nillable is false. However, when I make an instance without this element and validate it, Arelle does not throw a validation error.

I would be grateful if you could help me with this.

Kind Regards,
Angad

Hi Anged,

When you say "an instance without this element", do you mean there are no facts reported in the instance for the element, or that there is a fact reported for the element, but it has a nil value?

Kind regards,

Hi Austin,

When I say nillable, I mean no fact is reported in the instance for the element.

Hi Angad,

In that case there shouldn't be an error reported. A non nillable concept requires that any facts reported with the concept must not have nil values (xsi:nil attribute with value true), not that there must be facts reported for the concept.

Kind regards,
