Problem Projecting xy Data

I created a shapefile with xy data and defined the geographic coordinate system as NAD83 (data are in decimal degrees). I need to project the data to NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N. When I attempt to project the data I get the following message:

[INDENT]A locator with this name does not exist.
Failed to execute (Project)[/INDENT]

The data appear to be in the correct location when I open the shapfile in ArcMap. I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated.
