nikesh is an unknown quantity at this point
Have you sorted it out? If not, here's how you do it:
1. Start tecplot in your computer
2. In tecplot go to, File>Load Data Files(s)>Tecplot data Loader
3. Tecplot Data Loader will pop up. There, go to ur "Tecplot360" directory, click on "Multiple Files". You have 2 directories (or, folders) and 2 .plt files (don't worry about the files in those directories, what you need are the two .plt files)
4. Double click on first, the grid plt file and then the other plt file.
5. Click on "Open Files"
There you go!!
Hope it helps.
