Hello everyone
When I initialized,I have a warning:

Warning: More than one cell is equidistant from the specified reference pressure location.
Reference pressure location will be choosen automatically else specify unique off symmetry reference pressure location
Fluent can try to improve the mesh quality via the TUI command

I don't know what's the reason about it.I see somebody solve it after rebuilt his mesh,but I have no idea what's the point and how can I change my mesh.
(Forgive my poor English,if you have an answer,please use some easy words)

By default the reference pressure location is the cell closest to (0,0,0). Fluent is complaining that it couldn't find a "closest" cell. I don't really know how it automatically corrects this and finds a unique cell.

You can simply move this location to a unique cell in your domain.

If you remesh, your cell locations will change and this is usually often for the warning to go away because it's very rare for two cells to be exactly equidistant in numerics.

Dear LuckyTran

Thank you for replying to my question,but I have more to know:

1.How can I move the location?

2.If I remesh,what should I attend to avoid the warning?
