Hi Melissa,
I hope you are doing well!
Try this instead, where the case number corresponds with the number order in which they appear in the input file:

case  1 :  12  $ GT1
case  2 :  8    $ GT3
case  3 :  4    $ GT4
default :      10

Hi All

Hoping this day find you all safe at home and healthy!

Having a LEED review head-ache.  I need to change the way eQuest evaluates the assembly U-value for the proposed building.

I have 12 window types with variations in glazing, dimensions and # of mullions.  The way I see it now easiest to assign each window type as a "Glass-Type"  and then do an expression for height, width and frame width for each type.

Is there a way to do Height as function of Glass-Type..... the following is not working for me.

case "GT1" :  12
case "GT3" :  8
case "GT4" :  4
default :      #@##!!

The problem is that  default : is required and all cases end up being the default.

Any Ideas?
