Hello all, I Try to edit and simulate the command line interface, workflow example. I want to get the "zone air temperature, hourly" output variable as results in excel file, Hence I added to my workflow two measures -"add an output variable", reporting measure- "ExportVariableToCsv".

I get the error "Output: Variable,, Zone Air Temperature, hourly; is not in sqlFile. Please add an AddOutputVariable reporting measure with this variable and run again."

the variable name is depicted in the e+ rdd file. I try other output variables and get the same error. The add output variable is considered as reporting measure, while when running the ruby script generate_workflow file. false statement is obtained and the add output variable is considered as openstudio measure. appreciate your help regarding the right way to extract CSV file for a specific output variable

The variable name should be: Zone Air Temperature not Output: Variable,, Zone Air Temperature, hourly;

There is a separate input argument in both the AddOutputVariable and ExportVariableToCSV measures to specify the reporting frequency.
