Invalid Cp Error after running Program With UDF

PROBLEM EXPLANATION : A NATURAL CONVECTION PROBLEM

Geometry : 2D Rectangular Flat Plate

Link for all My Files

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1v-cl_aCg5rN6EjibgOcT8vE0ybGxsE-D?usp=sharing

SOLVER: PRESSURE BASED,STEADY STATE , LAMINAR, SINGLE PHASE AND WITH ENERGY MODEL

GRAVITY: Y= -9.81

MATERIAL PROPERTIES: UDF (CELL BASED)

BOUNDARY CONDITIONS:

ISO (WALL) = 649.16 K (Near Critical Region TEMP) {Non LINEAR}

VELOCITY INLET= 0.0001 m/sec and 643.16 K

PRESSURE OUTLET: 22500000 (No Back Flow)

Method :COUPLED AND ALL RELAXATION FACTORS UNDER 0.8

UDF IS ATTACHED in the link above(NAMED PRO)

ERRORS WHICH I GOT; INVALID CP (I SET TEMP BOUNDS RIGHT)

    As ANSYS employee I do ignore attachments and links to Deive ObeDrive etc...

    Paste your UDF here. Just for superficial verification as we do not debug UDFs

    Can you then start debugging a bit by setting some properties constant and focusing on the one causing the issue?

    Dear Atul, 

    Did you find the reason for error?.

    Sir I am facing the same kind of error.

    Can you please take a look at my post.

    Thank you.

    Hello

    I did not find any error but the property plot at end of my results, Showed me different set of properties, Well I cross checked all polynomials again , The polynomials seemed correct but properties fed into fluent didnt match with the Polynomial properties..

    If you're using polynomials with that many significant figures it's very likely that single/double precision and rounding error will generate significant errors.  Post an image of what the curve should look like.

    And if you overlay polynomial on top?
