PSpice - Combined power dissipated by selected resistors?

PSpice - Combined power dissipated by selected resistors?

PSpice - Combined power dissipated by selected resistors?

Very, VERY new to PSpice, and using PSpice for TI. I've got a resistor network set up with a voltage source, and my simulations are working properly. Is there any way to set up an output that adds together the power dissipated by resistors named R1, R2, and R5, for example? I've got 30+ resistors in the network and I'm only interested in the sum of power dissipated by a fraction of them, rather than the total power supplied by the voltage source. I can manually add up the power bias values, but I'd like to be able to present a screenshot to my co-workers for review with that math already done, if possible.

I've tried putting in a PARAM part but as far as I can tell that's meant to drive a value rather than be a driven value, and I can't figure out how to say "get the power dissipated by this component" in an equation.

Thanks in advance.
