x is for the depth. If you move 1 direction. the z or y will change.
For example. moving forward cahnges the z coordiantes. Moving to the left or right changes the y coordinates.

The only thing I can say is 'Keep moving until the coords are what they are supposed to be"
If a coord is changing in a way it shouldn't: turn around (or turn 90°). It's not that hard...

EDIT: Try to get one coord right and then move in a way that coord stays the same so you can correct the other one...

*facepalm*

Not an insult, but I'm assuming you're like 15 or younger, having not taken geometry.

http://en.wikipedia....ordinate_system

X axis is horizontal -North/+South. Y axis is vertical. Z axis is horizontal +East/-West

Even the best can be wrong sometimes, that's not a crime.

Yes, Y is the height, so don't worry about that.

Try pressing F3, that should work...

Sorry, but this is wrong. y is vertical, x and z are horizontal.
