Calculate the entering flow rate in each cell

Hi at all!
I am trying to find a way how to calculate the flow rate that enters or leaves a cell. In sum it should be zero but I like to find out a specific value for each cell of the domain.
Does anyone has an idea how to approach this? Thank you very much in advance.

problem trying to get the mass flow entering a cell

I have tried to calculate the mass flow entering inside a cell (for a DEFINE_SOURCE macro) with a loop over the faces of the cell but I have problems of "non-integer subscript expression: unsigned char".
This is my code
//near peak operating point
real Ft; //Ft source term
real T01; //Inlet Total temperature
real T02; //Outlet Total temperature
real cp; //variable which will store the specific heat of air
real x[ND_ND]; //array for storing the centroid position
c_face_loop(c,t,n)//line 21 the one which gives problems
f_thread = C_FACE_THREAD(c,t,n);
if(F_FLUX(f,f_thread)>0)// only calculate the massflow entering
C_CENTROID(x,c,t);//we store in x the centroid position of each cell
r=x;// the radial position is the y-coordinate of the cell centroid
r = x;
I need your help because I cant see the mistake I am doing.
