FLUENT V6 - Possible cause and resolution for the message: "Warning: no x, y or z points specified in profile"

When reading a profile into FLUENT a warning message is displayed

Warning: no x, y or z points specified in profile
When reading profile files, FLUENT looks for the x, y and z coordinates in the profile files. These must have the name x, y and z. For example in the following profile file, the x, y and z coordinates have been specified as x12, y12 and z12 respectively. This will result in the warning message.

If you replace x12, y12 and z12 with x, y and z respectively, FLUENT will be able to read them properly. Simply edit the profile file in a text editor and make the appropriate changes.
