Hi...I'm modeling an office building in OpenStudio. I've incorporated the HVAC system but when I check the report Outdoor Air Summary the Average Number of Occupants and Infiltration (ach) values change from the previous version with Ideal Air Loads activated. Someone can please explain to me why it is happening? Because both models use exactly the same occupation and infiltration schedules.

If you know the number of occupants then you should know the Average Number of Occupants to compare with the table reports. Does the latest version give the correct answer based on your inputs? Same for infiltration.
