Workbench (Engineering dara) problem
I defined enthalpy-temperaure values for a material in "engineering data" but there is sign "?" next to the name of the material. if I put a tik for "suppression" it will ignore the enthalpy then the problem will be solve (does it means, ignoring enthalpy for materials properties ?).

Question mark appears when you haven't defined a single property. I don't know how you are defining the material but try this.

Either try to duplicate one of the existing material and change its property, or to add a new material all by yourself, Start Engineering Data and click on Engineering Data Icon, (similar to Winrar, you will find it in top panel at right).

Now you will see different materials groups pre-defined in workbench. Scroll down to the end and click on Add New and name it, save somewhere.

Now DO CHECK THE BOX in front it to make it editable. Now you will be able to add your material. Once done, add which ever property you want to specify and then in the Material Class table, uncheck the box and click on save.
