I am trying to setup a meter to measure the hourly electric pull that my model requires throughout a year. However, when I setup the custom meter by pulling the template from the BCL library and run the simulation it fails with the following error. image description Where the file that is pathed (but it can't find) is the example .csv file given in the BCL for using the custom meter. Please let me know what I am missing for using the custom meter properly. I am using OpenStudios version 3.2.0 with Sketch-up 2021 for building the model geometry with a plugin for communication between the two programs.

Perhaps the space in the path (“Venstrom Research”) is causing a problem. Can you try a path without a space instead?

No that did not make a difference

Try adding the file extension (".csv") to the file path.

After adding the .csv I still have the same error

Oh it's probably the file separators. Try replacing backslashes in the path with double backslashes ("\\") or single forward slashes ("/").
