Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Geometry

If you are working with the solarshadingtest example file, you will 
see that there are four report variables requested which each produce 
an output for every heat transfer surface in the building:

Report variable,*,Surface Inside Temperature,daily;
Report variable,*,Surface Outside Temperature,daily;
Report variable,*,Surface Int Convection Coeff,daily;
Report variable,*,Surface Ext Convection Coeff,daily;

Deleting two or more of these will reduce the number of variables to 
less than 254 so that you can see all of the outputs in the csv file.
