Hello, i have finished a transient 2 phase VOF simulation in FLUENT d i choose to export my data to Tecplot (version 360 2014) files. The files exported were .cas , .dat and tec.dat.
When i try to upload the files to teclopt the .cas and .dat are readable but there is an error reading tec.dat files. I include 2 pics with the files and the error.

As i have understood Fluent creates a set of .cas and .dat when the simulation starts and a set when you have finished and close Fluent. This files are zipped
All the other tec.dat files include your data with the export frequency you have selected.

Thank you for your help.

I think 'tec.dat' is tecplot file, not fluent file.
So you must select 'Tecplot data Loader' option and load 'tec.dat' files.
I guess you selected 'Fluent loader'.
