Subject: Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Duplicate name error message

Actually it's 'edit', 'find', "Sizing:Zone". The name of the sizing object is after the comma or on the second line.

    Zone One,               !- Zone Name

Open the IDF or the expIDF file using a text editor option on the EPlaunch.

Go to 'edit' 'find' for 'Sizing:Zone:Zone One'.  If you can find only one in the IDF file, changed that to a different name, say ZoneOne without the space.   You may get a different error message.

In the expIDF, you may fine more than one.  Change the name of one which has a duplicate, and you may get an orphan object warning.  Then, it can be safely deleted.
