Is there a way to specify different measurement errors for each point?

I have an application where point data derive from several different sources, with different associated uncertainties.  I would like to specify a different measurement error for each point.  When I krig, it will be at non-data locations so both nugget and measurement error will be filtered (thus there is no need to know the type of measurement to produce the kriging predictions, it only needs to be known at the data locations).  Is there a way in Geostatistical Analyst to specify the measurement error so that it links to a table with the same number of rows as the input data, where each row specifies the measurement error (in % or absolute units, either is fine) for the corresponding point?
