I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.4.0

Hello! I am somewhat new to GIS software. 

I have one centrally located point on a map. I would like to measure the distance between that one central point and about 950 surrounding points with the goal of exporting each point and its distance from the central point into one excel file. Is there a fast way to do this without having to manually measure each point with the "Measure" tool? 

Thanks!

I'm thinking the Generate Near Table geoprocessing tool will do the trick.  It rights an output table with the and provides the XY of the point, the XY of each of the 950 points, the angle and distance.

Just make sure your central point is a separate layer
