Hi ,

I'm working with design builder and i exported the simulation results from design builder as IDF files for further analysis in EP.

After importing in EP, due to the difference in version of the IDF files i used the " IDF Version Upadter" from the Utilities to convert my IDF files to the updated version.

Even a successful simulation , the RDD and MDD options are still inactive and i couldnt access the data.

Please let me know how to fix this ?

You have to create an object in Output:VariableDictionary class with Key Field value being IDF to make sure .rdd (Report Data Dictionary) and .mdd (Meter Data Dictionary) files are created during simulation. Hope this helps.
