      How far back does MSFT, AAPL, and AMZN go? Is there an easy way to tell the year of historic data?

      Hi Elmhurst – each fact tagged in an instance has metadata associated with it – including period details – making the XBRL data standard an excellent mechanism for analysis.

      The query below summarizes reporting for the three companies in your post – drop this into the ‘config’ tab as a new row (give it a name), then select it from the Main Sheet dropdown to get results.


      Non-members will need to use the fact.offset(xx) switch to get later details. See #3 here: https://xbrl.us/forums/topic/how-to-get-a-sample-of-records-via-xbrl-api-for-evaluation/#post-116618 or ‘Paging’ in https://xbrl.us/xbrl-api-documentation for details.
