I am working with the API in excel and noticed that when I use Office 365 online, my XBRl lookup query is changed when I download it to my desktop as follows: “XBRL.SHOWDATA” is replaced by “_xldudf_XBRL_SHOWDATA” and the lookup fails on the desktop.
=IFERROR(_xldudf_XBRL_SHOWDATA(CONCATENATE($D$11, $D$12, $D$5, “&fields=entity.name,entity.limit(1)”),,,0),”Enter a valid ticker symbol in B1″)
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
