You did not make it clear exactly what you tried to plot. If it was the expression you posted, then try re-writting your function as
f[x_, y_, z_, a_] := z*Exp[-a*Sqrt[x^2 + y^2 + z^2]]
Here, I've eliminated the _z from the function name as Mathematica doesn't allow underscore characters in function names f_z is interpeted by Mathematica to be any expression with Head z given a name f, not what you want.
Changed the "(" to "[" to corespond to proper Mathematica syntax
dropped 2p from the arguements since it does not appear on the rhs
added a underscore to all of the other arguments. Using x_ is interpreted by Mathematica as being any valid expression and is given a local name of x
Replaced Set ("=") with DelayedSet (":=")
