You can only get the data that are delivered on the first request. The other tables do not exist in the web page, but they are fetched by a JavaScript program which is started by a mouse click on "Previous year". The data are likely not contained in any web page, but generated on the fly form a data base. The form uses 'post' method, so there is no information in the URL. I think, there is no change to get those data by linking to external table.
