#### Abstract

A method of graphing functions of two variables in spreadsheets is presented. The method uses parallel orthogonal projection. The *xyz* coordinate system is revolvable in two planes so the graph can be viewed from any direction. The graph is constructed as a mesh made over the rectangle [*x*_{min}, *x*_{max}] x [*y*_{min}, *y*_{max}] in the *x* and *y* directions. Graphing discontinuous functions are also shown. The visibility problem, that is, the problem of overlapping, is not solved.
