    To draw curves like these you will have to use the software that created them (Maxsurf?) or some other similar software. But these softwares do not support the data entered by the user, instead they generate their own table of values and draw them.
    If you want to draw the curves of the values you already have, you must use drawing software, drawing the corresponding points and the curves that pass through them, or, as I said before, using the MS Excel charts.

    Sir, I have already used Maxsurf to get this curve. But at the same time I have to draw this curve manually(It is my task). That's why I am asking this. I have tried MS Excel, but the resultant is zero. :(

    I assure you that in Excel it can be done. Investigate with the help of the application, how the graphics work and how to use them. You could also use AutoCAD or any similar software to draw the curves

    I agree completely with TANSL, if you want a two dimensional graph, say an X-Y plot, with several values of "X" and corresponding values of "Y", then arrange the values of X and Y in two vertical columns, then select the EXCEL plot in the "X-Y Scatter Plot" format, select the X-Y data, then make your graph. "X" and "Y" can be any two related parameters.
