STEP 3: Compile similar tables from 8K using Table Export
After the search completes, we have a comprehensive list of 8Ks by our about the company you searched for in a single view. Now we want to isolate the Selected Business Segment Data contained within these 8Ks and export a yearly breakdown.

In the Table Export window, click "Selected Business Segment Data" and then select "View Similar Tables".
