Hello.

I wan to read internalField data for my rhoSimpleFoam from simpleFoam run.

I tried using this format for the data file but OF6 complains that it could not read the token:
Code:
initial_kineticEnergy
List<scalar>
43843
(
.993
.9954
..
.....
)
;
So I added this at the start of the file but then OF complains to add the dimension to it:
Code:
FoamFile
{
     version     2.0;
     format      ascii;
     class        volScalarField;
     location    "237";
     object       k;
}
I am using that kinetic energy data file using the "#include file_name" command in the k BC file.

Whats the correct format when using such data files?

Some information on this would be helpful.

I just had to read the terminal warnings carefully.

The class should be "IOobject" and not "volScalarField","volVectorField", etc.

That fixed the problem.
