Replacing XBRL Dates and Concepts

Sometimes you need to tag a fact with a different concept or date. Use the Replace function to quickly change a concept or date.

Replacing Concepts

If you see that a concept you chose earlier isn’t as accurate as one you find later, replacing a concept saves the extra steps of removing it and re-adding the new one.

  1. Select the fact with the concept you want to replace.

  2. In the XBRL Detail Tagging window, click the down arrow next to the concept and click Replace.

  3. Search for the new concept and click Accept. The Line Item Concept field updates to show the new concept.

  2. Use the filters to narrow the scope of dates that appear in the list, such as In Doc to show only the dates that appear in the document.

    • If the date you want doesn’t appear, click the filter you chose to turn it off to show all dates and find the date you need.

    • If it is not in the list, use the Add Date option to create the date you need.
