Hello,

I imported a standalone table, right-clicked "Display XY Data", and set the parameters. Lat & long appear to be in the correct fields and the datum is selected. I quickly verified that the lat & longs are correct in Google Earth. However, no points are displaying in Pro. When I right-click the new point layer under in the contents pane, the attribute table is there and populated.

I'm pretty new to Pro, and aware that it's likely a simple operator error... but I don't know how to go about troubleshooting. See the screenshot! 

 

Thank you!

Seems you need to switch the two fields:  long for X Field, lat for Y Field.

Can you post a portion of your csv file?

That should just about do it....

I did! I'm going cross-eyed... I'll delete this post! Probably should have slowed down and had more coffee

Easy mistake to make.  :)

By the way, when you are wondering about the coordinates, you can watch the values at the bottom center of your map. In your image, it reads 107.298W and 39.426N. That should give you a clue for which values are x and y.

Don't delete the post!  You aren't the first nor the last to make that very simple mistake.  Enjoy another cup of coffee!
