I am writing to inquire about a possible XBRL extraction issue. When I try to extract simple quarterly revenue figures, some of the last fiscal quarters are zero.
For example, for MSFT and AAPL last available FQ4 is zero (even though previous FQ4 were available).
I was not able to find a ‘0’ reported in Q4 for either company. It seems these companies have moved away from disclosing Q4 revenue in their 10-Ks, so you’ll need to back out 3QCUM from Y to get this detail.
Using the XBRL API with the Public Filings Database
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, any and all use of the XBRL API to authenticate and retrieve data from the XBRL US Database of Public Filings implies user consent and agreement with the XBRL US API Agreement. If you are unable to agree to these terms, do not use the XBRL API.
To use the XBRL API outside of Google Sheets, your account needs to be provisioned for OAuth2 access.
