How to scale a profile quickly

Often in big systems, I have to export the profile on a given surface to use this profile as a velocity-inlet in another case.
The problem is, by reinterpolate data from a mesh surface to another, I don't have the exact same mass flow rate on my velocity inlet surface. As Mass Flow Rate is for me an important data, I scale the velocity variables in the profile to get the exact MFR I am supposed to have.
More generally, this question apply to anybody who wants to scale a velocity profile.
To do that, I am oblaged to copy-paste the velocity data in excel or matlab, multiply that by my coefficient, and copy-paste again in a new .prof file.
The problem is : this is very difficult for big profiles with thousands points, several variables(tipically x y z Vx Vy Vz k eps/om) and also several surfaces. So I began trying to develop a tool with a simple data structure to manipulate fluent profiles and honnestly, trying with Matlab and VBA, I didn't manege to do anything that works.
Is there any way to simply manipulate (scale, translate, ...) fluent profiles and its variables ?
