ArcGIS Pro

I imported a standalone table with 11 objects (with X and Y coordinates) to ArcGIS. When I want to Display XY Data, fields X and Y become invalid. What shall I enter into these fields? They don't seem to take the coordinates from the table. Please see below, thanks

You could start with saving the text file as a CSV (LectureTheaters.csv).

For X/Y Field parameters in Display XY Data, you need to choose (from dropdown) POINT_X and POINT_Y fields respectively.

Make sure your input data is formatted properly. In the last line, you use a comma as decimal separator, making it 4 columns as opposed to 3.


Have a great day!
