Hello, I'm trying to load some data points from a excel or CSV file. Do you know what are the acceptable formats to load those to ArcGIS Online?
CSV files are a supported format for adding layers to the contents of a map. For a full list of supported formats you can refer to this page in the help:

Right, thanks. So, I have a CSV file, but it looks like I might have to label the columns "Lat" and "Long" in order for GIS Online to properly read it, correct?
If your file has latitude and longitude fields, these are used to locate the features on the map. If your file has address information, or if the latitude and longitude information cannot be determined by the map viewer, you are prompted to review the location fields and change them, if necessary.
The following fields are supported:

do you know if there's a way to convert en masse coordinates from "Degrees Decimal Minutes" to DMS or DD? ie, converting a hundred coordinates on a spreadsheet from DCM to DMS or DD? or somewhere online?
Looks like there's a tool here that will batch convert the data from a spreadsheet to different values:
Thank you for your help. Now, I created a cvs file with coordinates as DMS but when I import them into ArcOnline, they show up as six-digit numbers (for example, 323232N loads as 323,232.00). Do I need to change a format or something?
