I am trying to convert an excel table into a shapefile. I use the Add XY Data which seems to work fine, but when I import into a geodatabase it crashes. If I try to just use "export data" from the XY data, it doesn't crash, it just produces an empty shape file (though the fields have the correct names).
I've filled all empty cells in the excel sheet, removed all of the unusable characters, and everything else I can think of and its still crashing. Whats really frustrating is that had no problems doing this with a table that had plenty of blank cells and unusable characters.
So any ideas?
