      When we come across data that seems to have been filed correctly with the SEC, but is under the wrong concept.local-name in the XBRL US database, do you want us to report it somewhere?
      I’m not so worried that one particular piece of data of course, it’s more if it’s a sign of some general mapping thing that has gone wrong. It’s in more than one report, but so far only for one specific issuer.
      fact.id=129160850 is an example of it.

      This query returns concept.local-name consistent with what’s in the xml the issuer submitted (we copy these files into our database every 10 – 15 minutes):


      If possible, please post back and let me know where you’re noting the inconsistency with what we’ve captured to the XBRL US Database of Public Filings (https://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/viewer?action=view&cik=320187&accession_number=0000320187-16-000336&xbrl_type=v# or https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/320187/000032018716000336/nke-5312016x10k.htm).

      I guess it must be NKE that have filed it wrong then.

      The fact above is from 2016 10-K but actually relates to the 2014 annual number. It is filed as “StockholdersEquityIncludingPortionAttributableToNoncontrollingInterest”
      but the value of 85000000 is actually “AccumulatedOtherComprehensiveIncomeLossNetOfTax”

      It appears correctly in the interactive report at https://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/viewer?action=view&cik=320187&accession_number=0000320187-14-000097&xbrl_type=v#
      so I think they have filed it – mistakenly – under both XBRL names.

      If you run the query:


      the value appears under both concepts. But those are very different concepts, and would never be the same. In the case of NKE, they do not have a minority interest and should not be using the StockholdersEquityIncludingPortionAttributableToNoncontrollingInterest concept at all. They should use StockholdersEquity, which they do, and that is filed correctly.

      They make this mistake consistently in later reports – so I guess the question becomes, is there a place – perhaps at the SEC? – where you can report obvious filing mistakes, to try and get them to get the filer to fix it?
