Error in harmonic simulation

I want to perform a sine vibration test for my model. Here I attached the required specification and corresponding input that I gave in the test. I tried the test only in the lateral direction. And I input the base excitation as two curves one with displacement (5-8 Hz) and one with acceleration (8-100 Hz).



The test needs to be conducted


The given input in Solidworks 






1 - Is the way I gave input in the software correct for the given test level specification?

      a. The way I split the frequency ranges into two base excitation curves

      b. input the 34.5 mm DA as 17.25 mm displacement 

      c. any other mistakes in the given values?

2- How to mention the sweep rate in the software?

3- How to resolve the error message?

4- Most importantly since the natural frequencies of the model is too far from the sine test level ranges do I have to perform this sine sweep?


If there are any mistakes please help me to correct it.
