To take into account BSDF in fenestration (frame + glass) I'm using THERM and WINDOW (LBNL) because this tools are able to export IDF files. However I need to modeling spectral data of PV cells and I think OPTICS (LBNL) is not so friendly to do this. I spent hours with MDB file (ACCESS) creating a spectral data but it fails.

Can I use materialproperty:glazingspectraldata (ENERGYPLUS) for this purpose? Is there any way to export the spectral data from ENERGYPLUS to WINDOW/THERM?
