purpose engineering X-Y plotting tool
Plot2Excel is an Excel spreadsheet enhanced with Visual Basic for
Applications to facilitate creating X-Y plots from large formatted data
sets. It efficiently generates many plots with a user-controlled standard
Plot2Excel reads data sets written by SensorPlot with a specified format in Tab-delimited text files. The program allows
the user to select data tables using an advanced search filter. Afterwards, any data columns from
the selected tables can be plotted on the same chart with user-controlled size, style and axis scale.
Plot2Excel creates descriptions of each plot and allows saving them as a text file called
Plot-Log. Later you can import a new data set plus the saved
Plot-Log file. By pressing a button, all plots are created with the new
data, using the same format which was previously defined. More that 100
plots can be instantly generated with the Plot-Log function.
Third Party plotting
packages that read Sensor binary output directly can be easier to use
and more efficient for large-scale use. We are not in the business
of providing simulator pre- or post-processing tools. These tools
are provided with Sensor at no extra charge.
SensorPlot with Plot2Excel
SensorPlot is a
post-processor program, which converts Sensor
result files for graphical analysis with X-Y plotting application
Plot2Excel. You can select data for
plotting, compare multiple simulation runs, add observed data, make unit
conversions and display results in MS Excel.
A Sensor reservoir simulation run creates a binary plot file “fort.61”
containing calculated data for wells, platforms, regions, superregions,
total field and traced components. SensorPlot includes the following
capabilities to handle this data:
the entire result file in Tab-delimited text form importable in MS
Excel or any other spreadsheet type of program.
data for X-Y plotting with Plot2Excel. These commands create two
tab-delimited text files. One contains selected data tables (*.tab)
and is referred to as the data table file. The other contains plot-log
information (*.plt) and is referred to as the plot-log file. Both
files are used with Plot2Excel to automatically build these plots in
can specify any number of Sensor result files to display the selected
variables on the same plot. On the combined plots, different colors
indicate each data source.

slightly larger symbols than calculated results and without connecting

data with user-specified unit names and conversion factors.
user can also write a program to read and process plot file results as
required for plotting by the plot package of his choice, if it does not
support Sensor output. The simple plot file format is described in
the SensorPlot Manual.
