Where can I find the table containing expanded electronic configurations for atoms in the periodic table, showing how outer electrons are distributed between different atomic orbitals?

I really just need to know the expanded electronic configurations of sulfur S and tungsten W.

So, for sulfur, amongst others, there are $p_x%$, $p_y$, $p_z$ atomic orbitals. And for tungsten W, amongst others, there are $d_{xy}, d_{xz}, d_{yx}, d_{x^2-y^2}, d_{z^2}$ atomic orbitals. I need to know how exactly electrons are distributed.

Does anyone have any idea where I can find the information or how I can derive it?

    $\begingroup$ The information you ask for does not exist, and not because of our limited understanding of nature. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Neretin May 11 '16 at 6:45

  • $\begingroup$ This is one of those questions where I have to ask: Why? What for? Do you really get what you want with the information you requested? You don't need to answer this comment, but maybe think about it for a second. $\endgroup$ – AMT Feb 16 '17 at 11:47
