    Hi Sharon,

    Thank you for contacting Surfer technical support.  The Export Contours command is designed to export only the contour lines with the associated Z value.  This is the case both in the user interface and via automation.  However, Surfer 12 and newer versions include the Z value during any export of a contour map.  Therefore, the Export2 command should include the ZLEVEL attribute and I have confirmed this in my testing.  Please note that the text will be exported to a second SHP file with Poly added to the end of the file name.

    To update your script, I would recommend changing line 33 to 

    ContourLayer.Export2(FileName:="z:\GWM_Schwetzingen\P01_Programme\GRD to SHP\SHP\"+schicht+"_major.shp", SelectionOnly:=True, Options:="RenderText=1, ScalingSource=1”, FilterId:=”shp")

    My colleague, Katie, has replied to your email with this information as well. If you have any additional questions, please reply to her email. 

    Thank you,

    Brittany Bodane

    How can I export Labels by automation?

    ExportContour doesn't allow me to access the Export options to make Render Text = 1

    I can't export labels of a contour map using Export or Export2
