I was trying to modify an existing IDF file to include a certain zones within the file. I am keep getting the below error for a certain air loops. All the details are the same for these air loops and others. Could anybody give me a hint on how to fix this problem.

Hard to say without seeing your IDF, but it looks like you may not have defined the AIRLOOPHVAC:ZONESPLITTER and AIRLOOPHVAC:ZONEMIXER for each of your new zones.

The problem here was that the splitter and mixer objects were not terminated with a semicolon. (The IDF came in to the helpdesk.)
