Displacment at given point

I am trying to determine the deformation/displacement of a given point in my model.  I've tried using the "Probe" tool to select a point on the deformed model (after simulation is run) and comparing that coordinate to the same point on the model before analysis.  However, I do not think that it is giving me the correct displacment value since the location of the deformed point does not change with other load cases.

 

If I wanted to determine the x, y, and z displacement of a given point, line, plane, etc., after load cases and deformation is calculated, how would I go about doing that?  I need to know deformation at specific locations, I am not interested in the maximum value for the entire model.
