sensor setting problem

Hello, I need to define a list of sensors. A simplified version of the problem is as follows: I have a cylinder and make a thermal simulation (temperature distribution). I need to aquire all simulated temperatures on the inner surface of the cylinder and export them (temperatures and coordinates) for further calculations. I can make it manually by choosing a list (in simulation results), adding an element (surface) and export this list to .csv. But in my real simulation I have many surfaces to add and I need to do it every time when something changes. I tried to automate this process.

 

I took the list with exported results, changed it a little bit to have a right order of columns and defined a WorkFlow Sensitive sensor by importing this list as locations. This worked fine. Then I tried to define a probe from this sensor - I chose the right (only one) sensor but on the result list there are only few nodes (and there were hundreds on my list) from a completely different part of the simulation.

 

What I do wrong?
