I may not have understood correctly your request (posting a real example 
of what you tried would help), but the following expressions work as 
expected. So you must have something wrong with your dataset or with 
your command. By the way, Mathematica expect a list of triples. Are you 
using anything else?

In[1]:= $Version
data = RandomReal[{-10, 10}, {3, 3}]

Out[1]= "6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)"

Out[2]= {{2.21572, 5.23816, -8.79253}, {8.16265, -2.82413,
   4.44417}, {-9.53565, 5.17273, 8.62308}}

Out[3]= [... graphic deleted ...]
