Extract detailed results from OS or E+

I am trying to present the data obtained with simulations, but I need them (at least for 3 representative zones) to report them hourly for 3 specific days. At the moment I am running an OS simulation, then go into my_model_folder-->run-->2-ModelToIdf-0 and then select the in.idf file to be run with E+ launcher. This allows me to generate the in-csv file inside the folder. I then open the csv, selct the data and copy/paste where I need them. The problem is that I have many variables and it appears that not all of them are correctly inserted into the csv file. I am guessing that maybe I need to split the simulation in 3 sub-simulations, with less variables per sub-simulation, and run them in parallel. I have tryed also with the OS measure add_output_variable changing the key field with my themal zone name, but apparently this was producing incomplete csv files without the variables I need. Since I need to run 9 different simulations, I need a way to speed up the work since it took ages with this method.

Thanks
