Help setting up Seismic Shock Analysis

Hello, as the title suggests, I am trying to complete a seismic shock analysis on a simple piece of sheetmetal, and once I finish that, I will attempt a much larger assembly of parts. I have never done a dynamic simulation like this before and would love some help in setting it up. I have a list of frequencies and accelerations (gs) to input in a chart format. I do not know which type of simulation to pick but have narrowed it down to dynamic, frequency, and harmonic analyses. I have created a mesh for my part and have attempted several simulations, but none of them appear to be doing what I want it to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
