Hi,
Well this is a wierd one but dont know why I am experiencing this. I am doin a 3D unsteady LES and to calculate relevant parameters I need to save my drag convergence history to an output file, so I check on the write option in the solve->monitor->force option but to my surprise when I start the solution no history file is created!!! (atleast not in my working directory and I have searched all over the hardrive its not there).
I tried troubleshooting with a simpler problem. So when I follow the same procedure in a parallel environment, using all the available processors the file is not created however if I run Fluent the normal way a history file is created when the solution process starts. I dont think tht this might be the case but this is wat I am experiencing.

I would be extremely greatful if anyone could point out the problem and guide me to a solution.

Regards,
Raheel

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
Fluent will create the file (also save case and data) from the path where you started fluent.
In other words, if you start fluent in C:/temp, all the files will be saved in /temp
