Real Contour Plot for Excel

Contour Plot

Real Contour Plotting Program for Excel.


Interact with the contour plot just like any other Excel plot.


Contour Plot works with any contour data. It accommodates rectangular data, nearly rectangular data, and irregular data. It includes a data generator for polynomials or any equation.


Note: EZplot includes the Contour Plot program and allows Contour Plots to be generated from the EZplot sheet.  There are videos about Contour Plot on the EZplot page.

    Excel must have access to the Visual Basic project.  Before downloading, perform the following steps in your version of Office/Excel:

    • Office/Excel 2007 and higher:
      • Microsoft Office Button -> Excel Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings -> Macro Settings -> Check Trust access to the VBA project object model

    Same setup as full version: See Before Downloading section.

    The demo version creates a contour picture with a watermark. The full version creates a real contour plot as a regular Excel chart.

    1. Right click on install exe file and "Run As Administrator."

    6. See the Setup sheet for Contour Plot in the file: C:\Contour_Plotting\Contour_Example_Data.xls


    What if the Contour Plot button (in Addins) or other functionality does not work?
    Make sure you have an Active license of Office (not all features will work unless you have an active license).  Search online on how to check for your version.


    Why do I get the error, "This workbook has lost its VBA project, ActiveX controls and any other programmability-related features”?The error occurs because "Visual Basic for Application" was not installed during the software installation. Close Excel. In the Windows Control Panel choose Add or Remove Programs (or Programs and Features in Windows Vista or Windows 7). Select Microsoft Office then Click Change. Select Add or Remove Features then in the Office Shared Features list select Visual Basic for Applications -> Run from My Computer and then Continue. You can then run the software when you reopen Excel.


    Where did the software download?


    Is Contour Plot for Windows or Mac?
    Windows.  We stopped the Contour Plot for Mac version years ago since only the Windows version was popular.


    Are Office Expander downloads Digitally Signed and timestamped so that I know the files are from Office Expander?


    Is an uninstaller included?


    Can plots generated with Contour Plot for Excel be viewed on computers without Contour Plot installed?


    What formats can be used for numbers?
    Numbers (i.e., data on a sheet) should be specified using decimal points, such as 1.0123. Some countries use the comma instead of the decimal point, but the Contour Plot program is formatted according to the decimal point convention.
