Loading a part in Pro/Mechanica with offset load

I need to load a cylinder (in the vertical position) where the actual force is 3" offset from the tube (basically bending the tube while having a downward force also). How can I create the load with out adding another part?

Thank you

click on the load icon , now if your force is "P" say 20 Tons, then in the force x /y /z place figure 20 in the x or y or z direction depending upon which coincide with the axis of the cylinder, and now add a moment equal to "Px3" say 60 Tons-inches in the adjeacent dialogue box.

I hope this is clear.
