Applying Concepts and Dates

Tagging a fact requires both a concept and a date, at a minimum.

To apply a concept or a date to a fact:

  1. Open the document, click Show XBRL, and select an XBRL profile, if one is not already selected.

  2. Click the XBRL Outline tab and enable Auto-Add to Outline to automatically add new concepts to the XBRL outline. You’ll be asked to either add it to a current XBRL outline section in your document or create a new one.

  3. Select the cell or text you want for the fact. To tag more than one fact at a time, select multiple cells.

  4. Click Add Fact on the XBRL toolbar or from the right-click menu.

  5. If the concept is already in the XBRL outline, drag it from the XBRL outline to the Add Concept field in the Fact Details panel.

  6. If selecting a new concept from the taxonomy, click Add Concept in the Fact Details panel. Then use the options in the Concept Selector dialog box to find a concept. Then select a concept and click Apply.

    • Browse lists concepts in the taxonomy
    • Bookmarks lists concepts you previously saved
    • Extensions lists custom concepts you created
    • Filter options further narrow the results
    • Taxonomy Tree View switches between a list and taxonomy outline view
  7. Select a concept and click Apply.
