Hello everyone,



I use MS access firstly build a query to format the excel data with lat lon fields and 32377 records and create a table and then export the table as excel spreadsheet (.xlsx) file.


After opening this exported spreadsheet in excel, I save it as .csv file.


Part of data shows as follows:

Then I open it in ArcGIS, use Make XY event layer tool to create a point event layer, use GCS_WGS_1984 geographic coordinate system, when the message shows completed, however, only one point shows on the map (should show 32377 points totally) and only one related record in the attribute table.


I've tried export table from MS access to .dbf format, same situation.


Does anyone encounter similar situation and know how to solve this problem? Please help!
