Can stress data be imported for multiple time steps rather than an initial stress condition?

      I am using the "external data" option to import stress data and apply it to my static structural model. I would like to import multiple stress files for different time steps, but it seems like I can only insert one data set as initial stress condition in Ansys Mechanical. I cannot specify an analysis time for the stress data either. Is there a way to import stress data so that it isn't an initial condition? I also tried to do this with transient structural but had the same issue.

      I don't think that is possible-
      What is the objective of your simulation? If you are performing a linear analysis then you could probably use a imported displacement instead for different time steps.
