[Bldg-sim] Importing WINDOW 5 file into eQUEST

Robin Mitchell from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory was gracious
enough to previously help me with somewhat of the same question.

Import a file from WINDOW into Bequest using a "Glazing System" file
from WINDOW rather than the "Window" (whole product) file from WINDOW.

You need to generate this file from the Window Library -- click the
Report button and specify Report Type = DOE, save that file under
whatever name you wish, and then it is ready for import it into Bequest.

In the detailed mode of bequest, go to the BUILDING SHELL icon, scroll
down to 'Glass Types' on the left side and right click on the 'Import a
Window 4/5 Report file...'

Hopefully this helps.

I would like to import a WINDOW 5 file into eQUEST, but I'm not sure how
to do it and what format it needs to be exported as.  Any pointers would
be greatly appreciated.
