Convert Northing and Easting Data to layer

I was given a csv file and told to convert it to a feature layer.  The data is supposedly in State Plane coordinates, NAD 83, Florida North.  When I plot this out in ArcMap it ends up being about 182 miles northwest of where it should be. What am I doing wrong? Here's my workflow:  

  • Open blank mxd, go to File -> Add Data -> bring in csv file.
  • Then go to File->Add Data -> Add XY Data. Choose csv file, x field is Field 2, y field is Field 3, z field is field 4
  • That gives me the event layer, which is 182 miles northwest of where it should be.


I'm fairlly confident of the State Plane designation.  Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong? Thanks in advance!
