My original data had 12 significant digits if I use fluent to export data with ASCII format.

When I try to set contour level in Tecplot it seem to be limited within 6 significant digits(when I try manual to set levels with 7 significant digits data but the last digit is automatically removed,Please see the figures I upload)?

How can I increase number of significant digits in tecplot setting cotours level, not the legend lables number format.?

Is anyone know how to solve this problem?

Tecplot 360 loads and stores data as double precision. So this is a dialog display issue, not a data issue. There is currently no way to change the precision displayed in those fields.

You should be able to see the full precision in the Data>Spreadsheet.

The Write Data as Formatted Text feature has a "Change Variable Format" dialog - so if you're writing to CSV you can specify the precision there.

I hope this helps.
