How do I generate an Historical Sales Detail report that shows detail?

I'm trying to generate an Historical Sales report that shows the detail for my sales for 2016. I go to the REPORTS tab, Select HISTORICAL, then set parameters for "All Marketplaces", "All Authors", "All Titles, and the date range for "Last Year".
According to the help files, when I click "Generate Report" the report should show the Title, ASIN, Units Sold, Units Refunded, Net Units Sold, etc. But the report I receive is a monthly summary showing Date, Paid Units Sold(ebook), Free Units Sold(ebook), Net Units Sold(paperback), KOLL Borrows, KENP Reads, Royalty(USD). The Date is simply the month and year, and the units sold columns combine sales from all of my books for the month. I need the sales information for the individual titles. Does anyone know how I can set the parameters to get this detail?

You will have to hunt and peck some of the info you want.
But:
Historical > All titles > Pick one to start. Run each title separately.

My Previous Month Reports going back to November 2007 are all available as Xcel files.

I download six months' worth every January and July, then tote up my sales. It's rather fun.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
