Greetings, Check out the Securities and Exchange Commission's New Financial Explorer
powered by Interactive Data. "Interactive data pinpoints all of the facts and figures trapped inside dense financial documents. It allows you to immediately get the information you want, and instantly work with it. For example, you can compare this year's information to performance in past years (both through raw numbers and visual diagrams) or drill down into how a company arrived at a given number - however you wish to slice and dice the data."

Three dozen companies have "joined the SEC's test group and have agreed to voluntarily submit their annual, quarterly and other reports with interactive data for a period of one year. These companies are helping the markets and the SEC determine the best ways to make interactive data serve America's investors," according to SEC's Interactive Data Website, http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/xbrl/interactivedata.htm
