Hi Durojaye,

Can you provide a little more detail.  For example, can you walk us through your workflow in ArcMap?

Polygons have very specific requirements for successful construction, and are heavily dependent on ordering.  Making a polygon from a random collection of points is generally not possible, though it may be possible based on the extent of the distribution of those points, or by applying analysis methods like a convex hull to the set of points.  You'd need to provide a screenshot of what you have, with a sketch of what you hope to generate in order to best get assistance with this question.
