Default visualising y+ and forces

Hello I'm new to CFD and am struggling to visualise the results, if the data is already then it maybe just a case of not clicking the right visualisation button.

I'm using realizable k-epsilon in simulating a stationary object in a tunnel and wondering how, if possible, to view y+ and viscous forces.

Hope someone can help, thanks.

Y+ you only can see on the walls - you must include the wall boundary to you scalar parts.

Thanks for your reply, that would explain why it looks blank. So far without success obviously I had tried adding a report and making a monitor from it, which was guess work, is there a proceedure for simply adding it to the existing system or does it require more complication to the model? Thanks
