RE: [EnergyPlus_Support] Does EnergyPlus accept multi-year weather files with arbitrary begin and end dates?

Answer is yes -- read about:

Tabulated results -- tabular will sum them all, they will be presented in csv reports sequentially.

My experience is no.  to do a winter model with actual weather data I have to make a file with January to June as the second year and September to December as the first year and then I can run a heating season model of October to May.

Subject: [EnergyPlus_Support] Does EnergyPlus accept multi-year weather files with arbitrary begin and end dates?

I suppose I can find the answers by doing some test runs, but I thought I'd ask and see if
anyone knows the answer to the question posed in my subject line.

If EnergyPlus can accept multi-year weather files, e.g., one that goes from July 15, 2011
through July 14, 2013, how would the monthly results be tabulated ?
