this has been covered in this forum several times before, do a search. in short, you need to create an output file which has two columns - one for time and one for the time dependent variable. This can easily be done by going into Solve>Monitor>surface and selecting the time dependent variable you want to monitor (in your case some measurement of pressure). The file will update after each time step. Once you are happy you have enough time steps to represent the time dependent characteristics, load the file into the FFT panel.
