Contour lines from "generate contours"

Hi,
Using the "Generate contours" of GM 10.02 is it possible to make the contour lines spread on several planes according to their height on a tif file?
Why can not I save a csv file?
Thanks a lot.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "spread on several planes". Can you elaborate?

    The CSV export is only for point features. To save contours to something similar, use the Simple ASCII Text File export instead.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Are you talking about multi layer??
    Please make it clear. I am also puzzled...

    Hi,
    sorry for my bed english and if I was not clear but I didn't know GM. Let me explain my demands:
    I have a TIF file of a area and I need to get the contour lines at various heights in DXF format (DXF Absolute Meters Mode to be exact) oppure CSV.
    I must use "Generate Contours",right? and then?
    Thank you.

    For that just use the File->Generate Contours menu command. You can specify the contour interval to use. Once the contours are generated, use the File->Export Vector Data menu command to export a DXF file.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
