I believe this work is typically done from XBRL to SQL. I'd llike to explore the possibility, and compare costs and speed, of doing it in R, using the XBRL package. Cycle through all companies that release XBRL financial statements, formatting each financial statement in a dataframe. Output both within R (in cache, using XBRL package functionality) AND to SQL files, sorted by date, company, and financial statement type. Standardize taxonomy (and other semantic) definitions, so that financial definitions work as factor variables across companies.
I believe that accomplishing all of the above would not deal with the question of correctness in the original XBRL filings. The XBRL package in R notes specifically that it does not provide this functionality. But, if you can make a case for using regEx or machine learning techniques to address this for me as part of the scope of work, I could be convinced. I have planned on doing that part myself. It should be priced separately.
