I need to export data of mass flow (calculated by an expression) from a point or surface every time steps in format .csv or .txt. Can anyone help me, please?

I find this code but it does not work for me.
!$outfile = "tmp.txt";
!open(OUT, ">$outfile");
!$nodes = count("Default Domain");
!print OUT $nodes;

Thanks in advance,

Mass flow from a point does not make sense in my opinion.
Through a boundary (inlet or outlet) or interface, I would create a plot as function of time in the solver manager and export this as csv file.
This data is available by default, even after the calculation has finished. CFX has saved these data for you in the results file .
Just open the calculation as finished run, create a new plot in the manager, and plot the data that you need.

Or, if you don't want to rerun, you can record a session in CFD-Post, export the value for one step, stop the recording, take the recorded file, put a loop around it to go through time steps.
If you are going to make multiple runs anyway, go for Gert-Jan's suggestion. It will also give you a way better output as you can export it all into one file.
