[EnergyPlus_Support] v7 to v8 conversion with EPMacro formulas

Hi there

I'm struggling to get my models to convert from version 7 to version 8.  Using the version updater tool some of the simple formulas get through the conversion process, but the more complicated ones don't.  For example the one below doesn't appear in the v8 version at all, and then when I try and run it it complains that it can't find the objects that are defined by this formula...

##set1  a_1st_N_OP #eval[ 43.449 / 3.5 ]  
##set1  a_1st_N_OP_sqrd #eval[ a_1st_N_OP[] ** 2 ]
##set1  f_a_1st_N_OP_sqrd #eval[ GlazingRatioN[] * a_1st_N_OP_sqrd[]]
##set1  Tot_Win_W_1st_N_OP #eval[ SQRT OF f_a_1st_N_OP_sqrd[] ]  
##set1  Glz_A_1st_N_OP #eval[ GlazingRatioN[] * 43.449 ] 
##set1  Win_H_1st_N_OP #eval[ Glz_A_1st_N_OP[] / Tot_Win_W_1st_N_OP[] ]
##set1  Win_W_1st_N_OP #eval[ Tot_Win_W_1st_N_OP[] / 2 ]  
##set1  Half_Win_H_1st_N_OP #eval[ Win_H_1st_N_OP[] / 2 ]
##set1  Half_Win_W_1st_N_OP #eval[ Win_W_1st_N_OP[] / 2 ]
##set1  Win_Area_N_1st_a #eval[ Win_H_1st_N_OP[] * Tot_Win_W_1st_N_OP[]]

I'm pretty confident it isn't a problem of too many characters - I've tried replacing the object names with single letters and it still doesn't get through.

Thanks for the help.

Cheers, Es.
