Interpreting Results

Results will show a listing of any error messages  that were triggered for that filing. In the sample below there are three separate error messages. The first message uses DQC rule 0005.48 (the bracketed information corresponds to the rule number – this is about the rule “Context Dates After Period End Date”), which explains that the date used for Dividends Payable Date on the Subsequent Events Axis is earlier than or the same as the  period end date which is not appropriate. The resolution describes how to correct for this situation.

The second error message appears to be identical to the first but it represents a different fact value that has the same problem. You may find multiple instances of the same error for values reported for different time periods. The third error message describes a situation where a fact was reported for Allocated Share-based Compensation Expense with a negative value that should have been positive.
