Wrong Location in PDF Report

When I use "Use a specific weather file on disk" on the Location and Resource page to specify the weather file instead of choosing one from the Solar Resource library and then generate a PDF report, the report shows location data from the current selection in the solar resource library instead of from my weather file on disk.

You can solve this problem by adding your file to SAM's solar resource library, and then choosing it from the library instead of checking Use a specific weather file on disk. Here's how:

  1. Create a folder on your computer to store your SAM weather files, and put a copy of the weather file you want to use in that folder.
  2. In SAM, on the Location and Resource page, click Folder settings, and add the folder to the list of folders SAM scans for weather files. SAM will add any weather files it finds in the folder to the solar resource library.
  3. Click Refresh library.
  4. Choose your file in the solar resource library. Be sure to clear the Use a specific weather file on disk check box if it is checked.
  5. Generate the PDF report.
