Can I use a Data Table to create a real Arbitrary Waveform for simulation within MultiSim?

Can I use a Data Table to create a real Arbitrary Waveform for simulation within MultiSim?  I have an equation derived in MathCad that I want to pass into my circuit.  Note that MultiSim's Agilent Function Generator is only psuedo arbitrary.

I believe that it will be very hard to find a truly arbitrary waveform generator except from a real world noise source such as a resistor with current flowing thru it. Try connecting the output of a noisy amplifier to a ADC and feed that into your computer!

If you have real world data you can import it into Multisim.  There should be a component that is called PWL(piecewise linear source) in the source database.  This component allows you to enter voltage or current vs. time data, and you can use this component as the source.

Thank you!  The PWL function worked perfectly.  I dumped from MathCAD to Excel.  Then Excel to ASCII.  Then ASCII to MultiSim.  It worked!
