carderne is on a distinguished road
Hello all, I've been finding help here for months but this is my first time posting!

It's a very simple question:
I'm doing a transient simulation of fluid flow and want to save the pressure value along a certain surface at every time step.

I tried to do something but instead of just saving a column of pressure values, it tried to save some kind of vector image each time. Unless I'm missing something, the, the automatic data exporter for transient solutions isn't as customisable as the XY plotter in the reporting section of Fluent.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Found a solution.

Just set it to export in ASCII format.
