3D plot question

Hello group,

  Suppose I want to plot a 3-D surface that is orthogonal to the x-y
  plane.  In other words, for each x and y, z takes on all possible
  values.   Any idea how I can do this?

  My first thought was simply to swap two of the coordinates, say x and z,
  make the plot, and then re-orient it so that it looks right.  But I
  gave myself a headache trying to figure out the appropriate viewpoint.

  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
