I normally set the gauge pressure and use 0 for operating pressure. However, I realized that I forgot to set operating pressure to 0 for some of my simulations. Should I perform these simulations again? Or 1 iteration after adjusting the pressure setting will be enough?

Which version of Fluent are you using? The operating pressure in Fluent is always set to the default 101325 Pa which is 1 atm. The results you obtained will be always regarding the absolute pressure = guage + operating (atm pressure). Therefore, if you forgot to set operating pressure to 0, I don't think that it will be a problem, if the absolute pressure value itself is intended. But if you have input the absolute pressure as a guage pressure in the BCs, then I think you might need to re-run the simulation.

Thank you for your answer. Yes, I entered the absolute pressure as gauge pressure. Therefore, operating pressure must be zero. However I just forgot to set it zero.

Then I think you might need to re-run the simulation as the BCs were not appropriate.
