      You can get an error when applying pressure as a function in the above format:

      You can evaluate the expression in Excel and then apply a tabular pressure. You must then know the value of x and y for the surface on which pressure will act.

      You can also write a file (location: x y z and pressure(x,y) values), then import that text file into external data and finally use the imported load to map and assign this load onto the structure:

      All the best
