Creating a buffer

Hello, this may be a basic question but I cannot resolve this issue.

 

I used an excel speadsheet populated with xy coordinates to plot points on my map and this worked out fine. I now want to place a buffer around the points and everytime I try I have gotten error messages saying "output feature class : <empty>" and "cannot open sheet1$events"

 

When I attempt to create the buffer I am pressing the dropdown arrow on input feature and selecting the layer I want, which then automatically populates the output feature class. I then put in the distance in and press ok.

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks!
