loading simple 2d csv data
Basically a simple question if there is any chance to read a simple csv data file into tecplot.

It has the following structure:
first coulumn x values, and then for every y value a velocity like this:

0 1 2 3
0 0 0.2 0.3 0.1
1 0.1 0.2 0.4 0.1
2 0 0.2 0.2 0.2
3 0 0.1 0.1 0.1

it would work if this were and excel file and i would be on a windows pc, but I suppose there is a way to get this in a well sorted way into tecplot - I just can't figure out how to do it.
It is possible to read the data with tex spreadsheet loader and general text loader but it's unuseable unsortet if I read it this way. I suppose it would work if I chose block format in general text loader but I don't get what variables it needs to read my data.

Can perhaps anyone give an example?

This video on YouTube may be of help: , and these tutorials on Tecplot's web-site: could be helpful too. On the last link, you will want to look at the tutorial titled "Tecplot Focus Gas Burner Tutorial".
