Snap to pour point

Hi all, 


I have a list of sites (lat/longs) in that I want to delineate subwatersheds for. I have about 50 points. I have added them to the map as points.   I have gone through the steps of watershed delineation, but I am getting stuck on the snap to pour point. 


1. When I use that feature a raster comes up that refuses to draw. What am I doing wrong using the snap to pour point feature? 

2. Can I delineate all the points at once?

Are the points in the same coordinate system as the raster?  (check both properties, don't rely on what the map shows)

They are in the same! Still seems to not work.

Are your 50 points either along the exact flow accumulation path and/or is your snap tolerance when using snap pour point tool set to a non-zero value?  I often have to "fudge" my points to fall within a raster cell along the flow accumulation path or set a larger snap tolerance value when using tool or else my output raster will be empty.  Rarely does my desired delineation point precisely match up to where the flow path is...just the margin of error when using rasters.

I was able to Snap Pout Point correctly via using StrLnk raster (Stream Segmentation for hydro) NOT Fac raster. 



However, my point delineator is not working the way I want it to- it is only pulling up one watershed for all 40 culverts instead of one watershed for each of the culverts. So, I am unsure if my solution is the ultimate right answer.
