Hi, I would like to convert each text (including csv) data into gis format. It take much time by manual (such as selecting x y coordinate to plot on display). It there any batch processing method, or python method. I also would like to output gis format from text format as same name files.

The code example in make-xy-event-layer should get your started.  Assuming your csv structure is the same, and your source location and desired destinations are the same, you should be able to throw this within a loop using standard python file/folder  locating protocol.  Or are you looking for a premade solution?  You would have to search GeoNet, since there is nothing on ArcGIS Code Sharing
