Hi all,


I am attempting to add the x and y coordinates to the attribute table of an address point file.  Is there a simple way to do this without using vba code? 


Currently, I have found that I can open the attribute table, select "Add Field", select "Double" from the "Type" drop down and then add this field.  From there I can select this new field in the attribute table and select "Calculate Geometry".  I leave "X Coordinate Point" selected in the "Property" field and then select "OK" and it calculates.  I then repeat the steps for the Y Coordinate Point.


Is this the best way to calculate the x and y coordinates?  Am I missing any steps?  Are these coordinates accurate?
