TECPLOT cell-centered data
 
hi guys,i wonder that the cell centered data is valid in tecplot 360 2009.i write a test data below,but it really not function the way i want:
TITLE="FE_CELL_CENTERED"
VARIABLES = "X", "Y","P"
ZONE N=9, E=4, datapacking=block, zonetype= FEQUADRILATERAL,varlocation=([1,2]=nodal,[3]=cellcentered)
0,1,2,0,1,2,0,1,2
0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,2
1,1,2,2
1,2,5,4
2,3,6,5
4,5,8,7
5,6,9,8
can anybody help me ? you know that interpolation from cell centered data to
nodal data seems too silly.but the cellcentered data of tecplot is wrong.
thank you!

dear friend,
i have found some replies from the web and i can now use the cell-centered data .we can use it in this way:write the data according to the guide;open the files;click the zone style;choose the contour;choose primitive value of contour type;when you want to check each cell use probe,you must look to "zone/cell info" not the "var values" in which the value is really wrong.so we can use the cell-centered data in this way.
thank you for your replyO(∩_∩)O!
