Hello, I'm pretty new to pss and python in general, but I've made a few scripts. I have a problem, I want to export the contents of a report to a text file. I tried with this, but didn't manage to get it working:

f1=open('./testfile3.txt', 'w+')



print >> f1, psspy.zone_2(0,0,1)

You're not far off. You just need to redirect the report output to a file. This is because the zone_2() function doesn't return the text of the report, it returns an error code.

# Redirect generated reports to a file
psspy.report_output(islct=2, filarg="./testfile3.txt", options=[0])
# Run any functions that create a report
# Redirect reports back to the default
psspy.report_output(islct=2, options=[0])

Thanks a lot, it works perfectly! :)
