extracting mean/sigma from monteCarlo run, using ocean...

I want to run a script that runs monteCarlo for N number of runs and

I used the skill script (sourcelink ref no.11026072) , as suggested by
On ocean prompt, the following syntax returns true:

I still use both.
Then I run the analysis
ocean > monteRun()
But once the run is complete, still I get the error as follows:

Errors with output expressions found:
\"avgIvdd\" does not evaluate properly.

Also, I observe that the skill script seems to be changing the
resultsDir to different path than what I specify in my ocean-script.
Another interesting thing is that I can plot the waveforms using
plot(clip(i(\"V6:p\") 1n 4n)))
but not using
plot(clip(IT(\\\"/V6/MINUS\\\") 1n 4n)))
Can somebody please help me how to solve the problem.

Could you post the Ocean script you used for running MC sim? I am unable to run the MC simulation. When I am running my script it is showing MC simulation as unsuccessful
