Using 34972a with 34901a cards in Switch mode

Good morning,

I am looking for assistance in configuring cards to switch 34901a cards to switch in 3 loads in a parallel sequence. These  will have resistances that will replicate current load changes on a voltage cell. 

Channel 1 will always be connected to the voltage source and Load1. The voltage value will be recorded to file.
then another resistive load2 will be switched in parallel to Load1  and the new voltage value will be recorded to file.
then a final resistive load load3 will be switched in parallel with Load1//Load2 and the new voltage value will be recorded to file.

is this possible? i have looked at Datalogger software but dont understand the Switch mode yet. I need to ensure Load1 remains on all the time.

Any assistance greatly welcomed,

Steven
