Thanks for looking into it. I am glad to get the contour plot :-). I did contour plot with other software. But I just wanted to make all my contour plot in my slides consistent. I will submit a technical support and keep everyone updated.

I may have found the problem. I added a new column (Column 4) that was just Column 2 * 1,000,000,000 and I was able to obtain the contour plot.
Interesting, I did what you said. It worked. Maybe the original column 2 value is too small? anyway, I also submitted the question to JMP technical support. Before getting reply from them, your method worked pretty well.
Contour Plot computes a triangulation of the data as a basis for doing the interpolation for contours. It looks like the triangulation step is failing in this case due to the different scales for X & Y.
There is an option under the red-triangle menu for "Transform", with two options. The default is None, and it will triangulate without any scaling of the data. If you change this to "Range Normalized", each axis will be scaled independently prior to the triangulation, and this appears to resolve the issue for this example.
Changing the Transform can sometimes cause changes in the contours (due to changes in the triangulation), but in this case with data specified on a grid there should be no difference.
