Hi, I'm a bit new to ArcPro, and I've been having issues trying to use the locator tool. I'm working on this project where I'm trying to see if the distribution of public park locations are in a pattern that would correlate with historical redlining boundaries. I planned to use the optimized hotspot analysis tool for this. 

The main issue is that I have 222 locations I want to input along with their establishment year and acreage. I made a excel sheet with all of this information and I want to use the create locator tool, then the composite address locator, and then geocode the addresses, but I keep getting stuck at the primary table section as it won't accept the table I'm inputting (there's a geometry issue it says?) I think I'm inputting the primary table incorrectly, but I don't know what exactly I'm doing that is wrong. Is the process I chose incorrect?

Hello Joyeta,

Could you be more specific about where you are getting stuck?  And possibly provide screenshots and maybe even a sample of the input table fields and attributes?  Also, which address locator type are you using?

Here's where I got stuck, I though having an excel sheet with the addresses would have worked.

Hi, I did try this webpage earlier. I don't think I used the correct table for my primary table. The screenshots are below.
