Default Pspice simulation

Hello, I have set a signal with the VPWL. I am using voltmeter to see what kind of signal I have set up in VPWL.

If I am adding a 10k resistor under VPWL source, it is changing my signal which comes from VPWL source.

Could somebody explain me why it is happening? If I change any other parts they dont affect my VPWL source.

Ohms law and Kirchoff. E=IR. The current that flows in the 10K resistor(pot) subtracts from the source voltage.

Hint, it is called an IR drop.

I am an engineer and academic. When I talk about current it flows from positive to negative.

Just moved a ground to the correct place and everything is fine now.
