When making a window using "spectral" data instead of "spectralaverage" data, Openstudio comes up with the error that there is no matching data set for the spectral data. I have this data set exported as an .idf file from Window7.2, but can't figure out how to bring it into Openstudio. Is there a way to import this data from within the OpenStudio program?

Since there's no answer here yet, I'll suggest that you will need to build the OpenStudio model using a spectralaverage window and then use a measure to replace that with the spectral window description a runtime. @macumber can confirm and expand on this.

Hi @willisrile, just to be clear, are you trying to use the E+ object MaterialProperty:GlazingSpectralData? That object is not yet wrapped in OpenStudio, therefore @MJWitte is correct. The best way to handle this right now is to write an EnergyPlus Measure that will import the MaterialProperty:GlazingSpectralData and then reference that data from your glazing materials. You can then add this measure to your OpenStudio model and it will be applied at runtime before the E+ simulation starts.
