Wall design using Automatic Wind loads in combination

I used Auto Wind loads Asce 7-10 case 1-4 for generating wind loads, When I display table for Wall Pier forces, In load combination 4 and 6 which involves wind loads, It gives me max and min axial, shear and Moment for 12 wind cases it generates. eg :-

p v2 v3 t m2 m3
LC 4 wind Max Bottom -11327.965 1871.721 795.226 8768.812 7764.5555 98009.8297
LC 4 wind Min Bottom -34740.068 -1477.747 -962.318 -10875.1691 -37609.0613 -4693.2327

Now for design of wall, I would need individual (P-M) combinations not max and min combinations from different cases/direction. Could somebody help me on how to use automatic load patterns do manually design wall.

Thank you
