But when I’m trying for different company’s CIK like Apple Inc. (CIK = 0000320193), API response breaks. And I can’t find any API to retrieve second data point. Is there any good way to do this? Please help.
Hi Sabbir – apologies for not responding sooner. The SEC requirement allows companies to create extensions for concepts that are not defined by the base US GAAP Taxonomy. So, it’s possible a company does not report Net Profits because the definition in the taxonomy does not match any facts they report.
