Using External Data in ANSYS Mechanical to Tabular Loads with Multiple Variables, Part 2

ANSYS Mechanical is great at applying tabular loads that vary with an independent variable. Say time or Z.  What if you want a tabular load that varies in multiple directions and time. In part one of this series, I covered who you can use the External Data tool to do just that. In this second part, I show how you can alternatively use APDL commands added to your ANSYS Mechanical model to define the tabular loading.
