adding xy data in from csv file

Hi,

 

I am having trouble added xy data for a species occurrences into arcmap. I've successfully done it for 83 species but for these 5, I've been having so much trouble. The x- / y- drop down menu doesn't allow me to click anything (where I should be indicating x-column and y-column). I've tried saving it as .csv, text delimited and tried on different gis documents but it still doesn't work.

 

The data looks something like this:

 

SPECIESPOINT_XPOINT_Y
u_malah431235112448
u_malah429814.5170755.6
u_malah402839.5290882.2
u_malah164366379005

 

I'm looking to plot it and then draw a minimum polygon. I'm just not sure if is just me, or if there is something wrong with the data?

 

Any help would be appreciated greatly!
