Hello Ashish, 

Thank you very much for your reply.

In fact, my Static Analysis has 7 steps. The 1st step is bolt-pretension. The 2nd, 4th and 6th steps are pressure loading and heating while the 3rd, 5th and 7th steps are unloading and cooling. See Figure 1 for pressure loading and unloading. The way of how I imported the temperature is shown in Figure 2 while your way is shown in Figure 3.  The Data View, Graph, and Tabular Data show the big difference. The "Auto Time Stepping" is ON. The Initial Substeps, Minimum Substeps and Maximum Substeps are 10, 5, and 100, respectively. So the Time(s) in Tabular Data is shown as 1.0001, etc.
