    Hi Jessica,

    It sounds like maybe you're creating a point cloud from your LAS/LAZ data and exporting to DAT or something similar. When you do so, if you check the Write Z (elevation) column checkbox, you're warned that the Z values will be zero when elevation data isn't available. It sounds like that's what's happening here. Instead, I recommend opening the file in the worksheet using the File | Open command and then using File | Save As to save as some data format like DAT or XLSX. Once you have a data file, you'll be able to grid the data and output as a GRD, DAT, or other file format.
