Something like the following Command Snipet in WB should do it:

Helo stumpy ,

I have tryed a lot , but i con't import load .

Could you explain more your solution please?

Whant kind ( and extension) of file can i import?
Where do i generate this file ( cfd post, fluent)?

I tryed the export from fluent in cdb, but i failed , the Snipet was not enough readable.

thanks again!

If you mentioned about cmdb (Meshing) not cdb (Mechanical APDL), you can import by File->import.
If your cmdb file contains CFX-Mesh data created by release 10, you should import by release 11 first and save as release 11 data.
