Hello

(I have read some help files but I couldn't make it to draw contours in tecplot.)
Thanks in advance

Tecplot needs cells across which it can draw the contour. You just have a bunch of points, so there's no way to contour.

The easiest way to create cells is to triangulate. See Data>Triangulate.
