In the simulation process, I need to know the hourly load of the building, so I selected two variables of HVAC,Sum,Zone Ideal Loads with Total Heating Energy and HVAC,Sum,Zone Ideal Loads with Total Cooling Energy in the RDD file after operation, and the following error occurred after the second operation.Could you please tell me how to solve this problem?

* Severe * Line: 24350 Index: 0 - Error parsing "Output:Variable". Error in following line. * Severe * ~~~ * Severe * Line: 24350 Index: 10 - "Hourly" is not a valid Object Type. * Severe * Line: 24355 Index: 0 - Error parsing "Output:Variable".

What did you do after you selected those variables from the rdd file? Paste them into your input file (idf)? And then correct the syntax? The part of the error that says "Hourly" is not a valid Object Type usually indicates that there is not a comma before the word "Hourly". And there needs to be a semi-colon at the end of each line.

Output:Variable,*, Zone Ideal Loads with Total Heating Energy, Hourly;
