Assalam Alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Use zero as reference pressure and then you dont have any need to define reference pressure location.

But remember that you have to use absolute pressure in boundary condition panel. But if you are using some reference pressure then you have to use gague pressure in bc panel

Wasalam Mukkarum Hussain
