ListPlot3D; very small numbers

Dear all,

I ve got Mathematica Version 2.2 on a Windows98 System.

I would like to plot a 3 dim graphics with ListPlot3D. The Problem is
that my numbers are very small. For example a (part) of my list looks

t = {{6.63385441055837E-019 6.30216169003045E-020,...}, ...}

With ListPlot3D I get an Z-axis from -0.5 to +0.5. The Graphic looks
very flat due to the small numbers.

Even if I set PlotRange->{0, 10^-18} I will receive axes from -0.5 to
0.5. The Z-axis changed with PlotRange greater than 10^-14. But this is
still more as my greatest number (it is about 10^-18).

Any Explanations? Thank you yery much in advance!
