Default CFD-Post error: no solution history

When using CFD-Post (v.16.2) to load result of a *.dat file (the associated *.cas file is in the same folder), I received a warning as follows:

"No solution history was found for the selected file [file-name].dat. ANSYS CFD-Post has searched the directory [folder-path] for files that might be associated with the selected file.
ANSYS CFD-Post has constructed a solution history from the following files: [file-list]"


After closing this warning, I checked the time variables in the "Expressions" tab and found that they were wrong for the loaded *.dat file. The loaded *.dat file was for 'time step'=2050 (corresponding to 'time'=0.0683 seconds), while the values shown in the "Expressions" tab were 'time step'=3025 and 'Time'=0.10083. Moreover, the 'time' and 'time step' in the "Expressions" tabs were the same for all the *.dat files with different time steps I tried to load. I could plot the vortex generation, but because the time step was shown incorrectly, I doubt that the plotted vortex was wrong.

I used CFD-Post for several studies with no problem, and this is the first time I experienced this error. It is really a puzzle to me. Is there anyone experience the same problem as mine? Could you please give some ideas why this error occurs? Your ideas are really appreciated.

Gert-Jan will become famous soon enough
Since you have .dat files, you use Fluent. So better ask in the Fluent forum
