[sampleDict] has error with [externalWallHeatFluxTemperature]
 
I was using buoyantPimpleFoam to model a heat source in a room and everything seems well with the simulation processing.

However, when I was trying to use sampledict to get data of field T I got the following error.

[CODE]
Time = 0

Reading fields:
volScalarFields: alphat s nut p_rgh p T--> FOAM Warning :

[CODE]

I can get the sampleDict results for t= 0s. But for t=60s the error shows there is lack of keyword Ta in my 'heatplane' BC setting in T file.

The following is my BC setting of 'heatplane' for t=0s, as can see the BC type is externalWallHeatFluxTemperature and I have already set the keyword Ta.
But I dont how to set Ta on 60s because they are calculated based on 0...

[CODE]
heatplane
{
type externalWallHeatFluxTemperature;
mode power;
Q 20;
kappaMethod fluidThermo;// calculate kappa=alphaEff*thermo.Cp
relaxation 0.1;
Ta 298.15;
value 300; // place holder
}
[CODE]

I am confused why sampledict the field T will need the value of Ta from externalWallHeatFluxTemperature?

Any help would be appreciated
