Can I please get some assistance, I know I've been asking a lot of questions but I have a uni deadline coming up soon and this im currently doing a uni project which requires some building energy data. Namely the outdoor temperatures and indoor temperatures over each time step in the simulation.

I have a working simulation now, but I cant figure out how to extract the data I need from the model. I understand that on OpenStudio, I can specify the output variable "Outdoor Dry Air Temperature bulb" or other variables as well as selecting whether I want them hourly or by timestep. But where do I find this data in the output?

Would really appreciate any help if possible.

Take a look at Dview. You will open the SQLite file and look at the results.
