The ANSYS documentation for the *GET command says this: "*GET command operations, along with the associated Get functions return values in the active coordinate system unless stated otherwise." I interpret this "active coordinate system" to be CSYS, but a simple test shows that some values are retrieved in RSYS, the result coordinate system. What is going on?

There are two "active" coordinate systems in ANSYS: one for geometry (CSYS) and one for results (RSYS). Which coordinate system is "active" depends on what type of data you are working with, not necessarily what processor you are in; for example, if you are in POST1 but *GET'ing geometry data, it is reported in CSYS, not RSYS.
