Taiwo_Oni is on a distinguished road
Here are the 2 tasks I performed:
(Task1): Having completed a simulation in Fluent 6.3.26, I used the Fluent File > Write menu to save my CAS and DAT files.
In the Fluent, if you follow the path: File > Display>Contours, a “Contours” panel will displayed. Click the arrow under the “Contours of” in the panel and select Velocity…. If you now click the arrow below the Velocity…. , you will see functions/variables such as Velocity Magnitude, Y Velocity, Z Velocity, Axial Velocity, Tangential Velocity, etc.
Also, if you click the arrow under the “Contours of” in the panel and select Pressure…. and then click the arrow below the Pressure…. , you will see functions/variables such as Dynamic Pressure, Absolute pressure, etc.

(Task2): I loaded the Fluent CAS and DAT files (mentioned in the Task1 above) into Tecplot 360 2013 via the path: Tecplot File>Load Data File(s)>Fluent Data Loader.
I discovered that some functions/variables that were in the Fluent CAS and DAT files were missing in the Tecplot file. For example, the functions/variables such as Velocity Magnitude, Axial Velocity, Dynamic Pressure, etc were missing in then Tecplot file.

That the functions/variables were missing in the Tecplot file can be confirmed as follows:
In the “Contour & Multi-Colouring Details” panel in the Tecplot, click on the downward arrow in the right hand side. Functions/variables will come up. Not all the Functions/variables in the Fluent CAS and DAT files were there; some (such as Velocity Magnitude, Axial Velocity, Dynamic Pressure,etc) were missing.

REQUEST: Can somebody please help me by letting me know how to make these functions/variables NOT to be missing, i.e. to make them be part of the functions/variables that will be available in the Tecplot file.

I will be happy to receive your reply.
Thank you.
