ASCII Conversion and Editing Tools
Some companies feel more comfortable submitting their filings in plain text and despite the changes at the SEC, including the implementation of XBRL, corporations are still able to use ASCII as a format for their EDGAR filings.
GoFiler Corporate is the best software available for converting documents to EDGAR ASCII. In addition to the conversion tools, you can edit plain text quickly and easily using functions designed to format blocks of text or to align tabular data.
GoFiler is the only tool you need.

After conversion, GoFiler Corporate has all of the tools needed to edit the document quickly. ASCII documents that are prepared specifically for the SEC require that certain formatting be used and that certain EDGAR tagging be added where necessary. Rather than waste time using software made for generic plain text documents, you can get the job done quickly and efficiently using GoFiler Corporate, which was designed specifically for this task.
Using GoFiler, it's easy to:
|Reflow text to 80 character margins required for EDGAR|
|Change the alignment of text|
|Adjust the formatting of paragraphs to quickly set first and left indent levels and create hanging styles|
|Format tables automatically to straighten columns, gutters and dollars|
|Insert EDGAR tagging and revisions|
