Layer with projected coordinates looses attributes

Hi Community, 


I am using the geoprocessing tool Project to change the coordinate system for some new data that we just received. I am changing the coordinates from NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_12N to NAD_1983_3TM_111 (the location is Vermilion, Alberta, Canada). The projection worked for 7 out of the 8 layers. One of the layers did not show up after projection and when I go into the attributes table there is no data. Can someone help me figure out why the one layer did the one layer not convert over? 

Kind regards,

In the unprojected file, add the X, Y coordinates to the table using Calculate Geometry.  At least you will have a starting point to confirm that the values of the point are indeed within the expected range.  If there is something wrong with the values, it could be a definition gone wrong, hence a wrong/impossible projection

... sort of retired...
