Hello all, I am trying to simulate a model I generated using resstock framework. Usually I do not have any issues, but this time I am getting the following error with regards to the schedule file and the simulation stops right away: * Severe * <root>[Schedule:File][baths] - Missing required property 'file_name'.

I tried pasting the schedules.csv file elsewhere and changing the path, however the error does not seem to go away. Does anyone know the reason behind this? The resstock generated an openstudio file version 2.9.1 and I am using Openstudio 3.2.0. the model was upgraded at the start.

Did you generate the model or was it downloaded from the EULP dataset at ?

I generated the model by populating characteristics in a buildstock.csv file and running it through AWS

Update: I downloaded a model from the link above and I seem to be getting the same error. The building used was "bldg0265615-up00.osm"...

I ran into the same error. The simulation was stopping at the sizing step. Realized a separate temp directory (called SR) is created for the sizing run and the schedules.csv file was not being copied to that directory. I was able to get past the error by changing the sizing run directory to where my osm file was located.

My directory structure:

@Eric Wilson perhaps this is a resstock bug that a schedule CSV isn't copied into the sizing run (SR) directory?
