I'm getting an error that I haven't experience before. I'm moving from the
Wizard to Detailed mode and the following pops up:

I am getting this error for spaces on the top floor of a 3-story shell.
Any advice?

The error message alone, given this is a 3 story shell which probably shouldn?t need multipliers (unique ground, middle, top floors are typical for multistory shells), isn?t terribly helpful but I might first try unticking/toggling the option in the first shell screen to utilize multipliers if that?s in play. That might fix it, but the error text could easily be no better than a red herring based only on where it occurs in the BDL.

A copy of the *.BDL file generated in your project directory would probably prove helpful to identify exactly what?s happening, or else what component precedes the first error to clue into what shell inputs are awry.

Without knowing much else, it might be easiest/quickest ultimately to just delete and re-do that shell in wizards. If you?re under a tight deadline that might be the best advice now or later.

I'm not exactly sure what is going on, but I did not intend to use a shell
It appears that some references are incorrect somehow? As in some zones
are referencing spaces that do not exist.
I have attached my files if anyone has time to take a look.

Thank you,
