As others have mentioned, this sort of calculation is better supported in
Amber 8 (no special programming generally required) than in earlier versions.

Even if you don't (yet!) have Amber 8, you can get an idea of what is
involved [and potentially enough info to do this yourself in earlier versions
of the code] by looking at section 5.15 of the Amber 8 Users' Manual, which
is available from the Amber web site.

....good luck...dac
