I Import native Fluent .cas and .dat files to Tecplot
But, my variable names are not loaded. The variables show as a number.
How do I correct this and get variable name?

This issue has been improved over time in Tecplot 360, so try the most current release for best results. The Tecplot 360 Fluent loader is dependent on a file that Ansys provides to us to translate variable numbers to names, unfortunately the file they provide isn't perfect - so there may still be issues in the most current Tecplot 360 release.

Note that Tecplot 360 2021 R1 and newer also now includes a Fluent Common Fluid Files reader which can read .cas.h5 and .dat.h5 files.
