Controlling movement by external input

I was wondering if it is possible to control movement of parts/assembly's in motion study or animator with an external file like vb or Excel. About the same way a Design Table is used.

Something like:

- Between 0:00 and 0:10 move part A to x,y,z
- Rotate part B between 0:00 and 0:20 80 degree

The main purpose for this is to not only create a static image for a client but a full working machine in 3d. I'm afraid this is a bit out of SolidWorks league, but if it is not possible is there a other add-in or maybe an other program that can do what I want or do I have an impossible request?
