Inputting a table of position vs. time and simulating it

I have been using the Solidworks 2007 add on "animator" and have found it very useful to simulate assemblies in motion but now i was wondering if it was possible to input orientations or positions of the model into the animator and let it simulate that. For example, i am thinking about collecting data from a potentiometer that records the angular position of a robotic arm at intervals of time. I was thinking about recording this data in a excel table and then transfering it to the Solidworks animator or motion study add on and get it to simulate the data i collected but I do not know how. Does anybody know if it is possible for me to do this or if there is an alternative solution? Thank you!
