I'm developing an energy model to describe the behaviour of two rooms and I'd like to impose a boundary condition on the internal wall. In particular, I measured the surface temperature on the adjacent rooms and I'd like to use this data as boundary condition for the rooms that I'm studying. I tried to use "SurfaceProperty:OtherSideCoefficients" and a file as schedule to import the temperature I measured, but it deos not work since the schedule requires one year of data and I have just few months. How can I introduce the data in my model?

If you plan on running an EnergyPlus simulation for only a few months to overlap with the time when your temperature data was measured, then you want to change the begin / end input fields of your RunPeriod object accordingly. After that, you can create "fake data" (i.e. manually enter zeros) for the remainder of the year in your schedule file so that EnergyPlus can read it correctly.
