RE: plot graph

they are several issues here:
1) in using ListPlot3D you do not provide X and Y they are assumed by
the location in the array
2) you need to provide a 2 dimensional array

I suggest you do 
Show[Graphics3D[ Line [{{1,10,100},{2,20,200},{3,30,300},{4,40,400}}] ]]

If you do not want lines you might want to substitute "Point" for "Line"
in the command above.

That's a pretty boring graphic. I hope it gets better with real data.

good luck,
