Default x, y, z coordinates in automatic solution data export

Hello all...

I have setup a solution data auto-export to look at a few quantities such as x-velocity and y-velocity on a specific surface. I have also selected the x, y, and z coordinates because I need to know the location of the data points. When I do this, I get the following columns of data (written exactly as they appear in the data file):

1. cellnumber
2. xcoordinate
3. ycoordinate
4. zcoordinate
5. dexvelocity
6. tyyvelocity
7. tyxcoordinate
8. teycoordinate
9. tezcoordinate

So columns 1-4 appear no matter what quantities I select. 7-9 are there because I have selected x, y, and z coordinates under quantities. (I am using ASCII cell centered for the export and the model is 3D with a structured hexa mesh)

My problem is that the coordinate data does not match (ie the x coordinates are not the same in column 2 and 7...close but not exactly the same). Does anyone know which set of data I should be using to get the correct location of the cells?

Thanks in advance!!
