The map display is correct. The problem is that the Geometry calculation does not read the transformation information you set in the map. If you can change the transformation and the result of Geometry calculation is always the same. The workaround is using ‘Add XY table to point” to create a new feature class. In the tool, you can set the output coordinate to NAD27 in Environment. Then the Geometry calculation will give you correct result.
I loaded an existing feature class into the map. The coordinate system is NAD83.
Set the Coordinate of the map to NAD 27,UTM12. The X,Y in map display is correct but the result of geometry calculation is wrong,
Change Map Coordinate back to NAD 83,UTM12. Everything is correct now.
If you want to do geometry calculation, you need to create a new feature class and set the output coordinate to NAD27. Then the geometry calculation will work.
