willisk15 is on a distinguished road
I am running a 2D simulation of water flowing over/through an object, and I need to save data to manipulate further in Excel. I already know that you can take the monitor data and put it into excel manually, but I have three cases, with 33 monitors each, so 99 files total. I don't mean to be one to whine, but that is going to be a very heavy workload on top of my other responsibilities, so I was curious if there is a faster way, or a way to automate the whole process?

Also, is there a way to automate the monitor creation process? It would also save me a lot of time.

Please keep in mind that I am relatively new at this. I am an undergraduate mechanical engineering student, and what knowledge of Fluent I do have is self-taught. Thank you in advance!
