[Equest-users] Fortran error???

Hello all,

Has anyone been able to determine a cause for this error? I’ve experienced a similar issue as Mike described below, and there are no comment-related syntax errors in the INP file.  Like Mike, this is persisting throughout the simulation.

Error: “Forrtl: info (58): format syntax error at or near (Note: u-values include outside air film)'//73X, "LOCATION OF ORIGIN'/51Xm 'GL”

It seems tied to the inclusion of skylights in the version 3.65 model; the only way I’ve been able to remove the error is by removing the skylights (though this is not an ideal solution, as they need to be included in the model).

Maybe the $ from a comment in your INP was somehow removed. If you're familiar with INP edits you might want to search for "Note: u-values include outside air film" and see if there are syntax issues there.

I have a model that I was running yesterday without any issues, but today when I try to run the model it gives me the following error:

Forrtl: info (58): format syntax error at or near (Note: u-values include outside air film)'//73X, "LOCATION OF ORIGIN'/51Xm 'GL

Has anyone experiences this error before?  I tried restoring my folder to an older version from when the model was running properly, but that didn’t work.  I also tried running in Windows XP mode and that didn’t work either.  I’m using eQUEST v 3.65.
