Good Morning I added data from excel. When I connected it to my folder only the sheet came up, but on the points on the map. What did I do wrong?
that is a table, and I suspect that you want to make an event layer to create a featureclass.
The table may contain the coordinates, but it doesn't automatically map them

I went to display X Y data. I click on the dropped down from x and y and its blank.
Maybe you should check your table for 2 columns of numeric data that have the coordinates in decimal degrees or in a projected coordinate system, or, screen grab your table. Maybe there are no coordinates or they might be in text format or in degrees minutes and seconds or addresses.
Just guessing now, until we can see the table
This is what the file look like
You need xy values to plot on the map, unless you are up for some geocoding from your addresses. Not trivial, but can be done:
