I set up a monitoring point for some variables in the CFX 10.0 solver. When I export in Post the same variables at the same location I end up with different values for my variables than those given in the solver manager. Why is that?

When setting up a monitoring point, the solver looks for the vertex closest to the monitoring point that you have defined, and monitors the values there. Depending on the mesh resolution, the actual monitoring point will be a small distance away from the point you have specified. There is some indication of the exact location of the monitoring point at the top of your output file.
Post on the other hand will interpolate the values to the exact location that you specify. So the values from Post will differ from that given by the solver at your monitoring point.
