[Equest-users] Changing weather file in Detailed mode

In detailed mode, the weather file appears under the first tab 'Project & Site', first sub-form 'Project Data', and section 'Building Location & Utility Rates'.  You will have to save the '.bin' weather file in the eQUEST 'Weather' sub-folder first.  Example: to switch from TMY2 Minneapolis to TMY2 Chicago replace TMY2\MINNEAMN with TMY2\CHICAGIL.  You will get a warning message regarding 'Site Properties' and be able to open this form and make the changes.  The '.bin' file should have the latitude & longitude (and maybe ground temps) and it could be left blank.  Solar-Daylighting & Terrain come with defaults
