VSA 89600 Demodulation - BER

Hello,

Is there a way to capture the demodulated bitstream in a file in order to calculate the Bit Error Rate (BER)? 

For example, I'm building WiMax signals with different levels of AWGN using Agilent's N5182A VSG and Signal Studio with a known dataset.  I can then capture the signal's IQ data in a CSV file, import this to the 89601A software and successfully demodulate the WiMax signal.  In the 'Ch1 OFDM Sym/Errs' window I can see the demodulated bits for each of the data bursts, along with the pilot bits, in the WiMax Signal but is there a way to capture this in a separate file?

Thanks,
