Why can't a report be analysed and the name of the report appears faded in the Company Search?

In this article, you will learn why a report sometimes appears faded and cannot be opened in a company’s list of reports.

When a report appears faded, this means that Datamaran cannot analyze it. This could be because:

  • The report is corrupted.
  • We could not identify enough topics in the document because it is too small, and hence cannot be compared with other reports.
  • The pdf has security features that prevent us from processing it.

What is the effect of this?

Although the report is included in the list, it cannot be used for any analysis, including the Search function, and will not be included in “my topics analysis” or in any peer analysis.
