Go to the SEC website and download the FY18 10-k Excel files for Pfizer (PFE), Merck (MRK) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). In order to download the files you will need to search for each company and find the 10k filing for the year 2018. You can limit the file types you see by typing 10-k into filing type within the filter results option. Click on the interactive data option next to the 10-k filing information. Directly below the company name you will see an option to “View Excel Document” – click here and download the 10-k. Save each of the three files to the same folder. Name the files based on company name, file type and year (e.g. MRK_10K_FY18). In order to combine data, we will use an Excel function called VLOOKUP (Microsoft Excel VLOOKUP (Links to an external site.)).
=VLOOKUP(“Entity Registrant Name”,'[PFE_10K_FY18.xlsx]Document and Entity Information’!$A:$D, 2, FALSE)
The formula looks for the cell in the first row of the array with the value “Entry Registrant Name” and returns the value in the second column of the array in the file PFE_10K_FY18.xlsx and in the tab “Document and Entity Information. In this case the value in that cell is PFIZER INC.
You can see the power of VLOOKUP to quickly pull data from different sources. One could duplicate this formula and only change the file name to pull data from many sources, assuming the files are formatted the same – that is the same array, columns, tab names and lookup value apply.
