Projection issues

I'm having a tough time with data projection. I have compiled a csv dataset that has lat-long coordinates. Using ArcGIS Pro, I displayed this dataset through GCS_WGS_1984. However, the data points are not visible at all.  The coordinate system of my map's data frame and every other layer that already exist is NAD 1983 UTM Zone 10N. I'm using the "project" tool to project spatial data from GCS_WGS_1984 to  NAD 1983 UTM Zone 10N it is giving me a failure error 999999.

Please help me troubleshoot this problem.

Open an empty map.

Check the data for blank entries (eg, long or lat missing a value)

Assuming that the coordinates are in decimal degrees and you specified longitude for X and Lat for Y and the sparial reference was defined correctly, add it to the map and check that the map is working alright with the data.

Use the Define Projection tool, if you don't get a chance to define it during the import step.

Save/copy the csv to a featureclass in a local file geodatabase.

Project it to your desired coordinate system using the Project Tool

Does it work now? or are you getting an error? and if so, hopefully the error is more than 999999

... sort of retired...
