I can export "Zone Opaque Surface inside Face Conduction Gain",but I cannot export " Zone Opaque Surface Outside Face Conduction Gain". And how can I get the envelope load ,if envelope load = Zone Opaque Surface inside Face Conduction Gain-Zone Opaque Surface Outside Face Conduction Gain?

I believe that this is not regular output variable. If you look in the Input Output reference you will see that you have to use those variables carefully and you

must use the Diagnostics object to allow reporting

Output variables applicable to opaque heat transfer surfaces (FLOOR, WALL, ROOF, DOOR). Note – these are advanced variables – you must read the descriptions and understand before use – then you must use the Diagnostics object to allow reporting.

If you don't know how to enable output variables just comment and I will explain or better you can search that topic.

Can you explain ? I can't find my fault. I just export the IDF from DesignBulider to Energyplus. And I found that the “Walls+Ground Floors+Roofs” value in the DB report is equal to“:Zone Opaque Surface Inside Faces Total Conduction Heat Gain Rate—Zone Opaque Surface Inside Faces Total Conduction Heat Loss Rate ". Why it is nothing to do with “ Outside Face Conduction ”

Did you manage to get the 'Zone Opaque Surface Outside Face Conduction Gain' ? I am doing something similar, to what you are describing.. and I need some help :/ Thanks in advance!
