Dear all,
After I export building load with hourly report function,
I can see the results with D2SimViewer,but all the value shown in .csv file is ZERO.
Does anyone know how to fix it?Many thanks for your help.

I haven?t encountered this before, personally.

If you try to open the .hsr file generated with the simulation as a csv file, do you get the same result? Does this behavior persist between different projects on the same machine? Feels like a long shot but you might try sharing your project (INP/PD2/PRD) with someone else to see if they can reproduce on another machine.

For what it?s worth, this doesn?t sound like anything that would be specific to your project files however (INP/PD2/PRD). From that, a probable resolution path may just be re-downloading/reinstalling a fresh copy of eQuest.

Hi Nick and David
Thanks for your reply!!
Please kindly find simulation file from this link.

Actually it is an initial building which created by equest at first beginning, but other projects still have same problem.
I tried to export the Building Load variable type to track annual cooling and heating load value of each component like below screenshot.
After ran the simulation, it was available to get the results from D2Simviewer as below.But, if I click the Hourly Results tab on D2SimViewer, the opened excel file shows all value as 0.
If I create the same initial building with Doe 2.2 engine, all is well.

Zane which variable are you exporting ? the building utility use or did you make a variable to track heating or cooling loads?
