Export data in Model Builder:

I am working with a model (9.3) which creates an event layer (x,y coords) as an import parameter.  Further analysis is required on that x and y coordinate, although I can't run the geoprocessing on the event layer.  I tried adding 'Export Data' to the model, to export to a feature class for further analysis, but 'export data' won't work in model builder when trying to drag and drop.  Is there a method to make export data work in model builder, or an alternative approach to transform the event layer to a feature class or shapefile.  Thanks!
