How can you update latitude and longitude of points by draging them, and have them update in the attribute table so they can be exported to something like excel with the accurate locations?

I am conducting a Tree Inventory and our GPS recorder was not accurate. I spent the time to move all the points around in GIS using the editor to place them in their correct locations. However, when I move the points, their latitude and longitude are not updated in the attribute table. So when I export the data to Excel, it does not have the updated coordinates. I want to export to Excel to have a database of all the tree information.


Is there a way to have latitude and longitude by a dynamic part of the attribute table? Or a way to update the new coordinates that have been dragged?

Point in incorrect location. When point is moved and the identify tool is used again, the coordinates are not updated. This image shows where tree is meant to be. If you look at other picture provided, the latitude and longitude have not been updated after using the identify tool on both.

Please Help.

Thank you all!
