Hi Jeff
I'm getting an exception when I try to load an xbrl

xbrlDoc.Load("http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1800/000104746911001056/abt-20101231.xml);

System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

But I can get it using a browser.
Any idea what's gone wrong? Works with most xbrl links but there are a couple that didnt work.
Thanks

Seems to be an edgar problem. The response uri is a different link and that returns 404, but I can't understand why it works when using a browser?

Good question. I wonder if Gepsio is having a problem finding one of the auxiliary files, like an imported XSD or a linkbase document? I will see if I can find out.

In any case, better error messaging is needed here. I'll put that on the list. Thank you for the report!
