Default Monitor Point Values

I have a transient run and I'm using monitor points to watch the time histories of the mass flow rates during the run so that I don't have to write out transient result files and then wait for CFX-Post to assemble a time history after the run. Is there an easy way to export the monitor point values displayed during the solution? I tried the cfx5dfile command but I end up with a lot of extra variables that I don't care about in the file and so it has too many columns for Excel to handle.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Plot the monitor point in the Solver Manager and right click on the plot to export the data to a .csv file.

Note that you don't need to create monitor points to plot mass flow rates; these are already written to the mon file, you just need to create a monitor plot.

CycLone,

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed. I see what you mean about the mass flow rates already being available for all defined regions. However, I needed to look at subsets of some of my regions (multiple ports) so I had to create the monitor points in CFX-Pre using the mesh region primitives.
