thanks very much for your response, it worked finally, the problem was that i was using the export meter name not exactly the same name used for the meter and when i used it as a copy paste from the name it worked. regards

When a measure fails, you should use check out the error log from the measure, see run\4-UserScript-0\stderr and open that with a text editor.

In your case, the problem is likely that you are not using an actual meter name, there is probably a typo or an extra space. Do a copy paste from the eplusout.mdd and try again.
