SAP Disclosure Management 10.1. Problem with XBRL taxonomy

Hello, we are working with SAP Disclosure Management 10.1 SP 06.

We are trying to upload the latest version of a taxonomy. We have managed to load the file with the taxonomy and we have imported the entry point successfully, but when we try to open the 'XBRL Mapper Add-in' in MS Excel, only the following message appears:

"A newer version of taxonomy has been uploaded. To get the newest version update the entry point first"

Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Hello Daniel,

    Try this:

    1) On the report you get the message on, check the XBRL instance it is linked to (in report settings)

    2) Open the XBRL report,

    Select the XBRL Taxonomy item, and click on the XBRL Taxonomy tab

    Select the taxonomy (period/report/chapter)

    Click 'Save"

    Hi Mark, thanks for your answer.

    I have checked in my report I have everything as you indicate, but when I try to open the 'DM XBRL Mapper' the same message still appears.

    Any other idea?

    Hello Daniel

    I have reproduced your issue, and I believe you skip a step in your setup that leads to this message

    To start, I have a report (Excel), an XBRL taxonomy, and an XBRL instance

    The Excel is linked to the Instance

    My taxonomy has been uploaded, and entry point is imported

    In the XBRL instance (on Taxonomy tab), the link to this taxonomy is made and entry point is saved

    When I start the XBRL mapper, all is working OK

    Now, a new taxonomy is uploaded (in the taxonomy report). In this case, a new base taxonomy, This example uses the Colombian taxonomy. For US SEC, it would be more likely to be the extended taxonomy. but I believe you may only have base taxonomy as well (with entry points within the base)?

    If you now start the XBRL mapper, you get this message - same as what you describe

    The reason is, that tn the taxonomy (so the taxonomy report, not the XBRL instance), the entry point will show "update available"

    Once you have re-imported this, the XBRL mapper will work fine again
