Hello all,

I am kinda desperate because I was expecting to save some time running Create Baseline Building Measure. Since I started this project I have been running the measure every 2 weekes to make sure it was going to work.

Last week I tried running the measure and it was all done. Today, I tried it again and it did not work. I searched for any help but could not find anything helpfull.

Can anyone help with this error?

@lrebello thanks for posting this, we are looking into the issue now. Do you know what changed in your model between when it ran successfully and when it didn't? Specifically I'm wondering i you added a people directly to a space instead of just adding people through a space type.

@davidgoldwasser I bet that was really my problem, you got straight to the point.

I had some spaces with people associated directly to them and others with people associated with the spacetype.

I just removed all people associated directly with the space and applied the measure.

All I have are good news. Measure is running perfectly.

Thank you very much for your adivice.

I'm glad that work around was fine for you, but just to clarify, you should be able to put people or other loads in a space and still use the baseline measure. So there still is and issue for us to fix so you and others don't hit this in the future.
