Adding xy data points, from an ascii file, to a feature class...
This have been basic functionality since many years.
So why is it still so difficult to make it work?

Can anybody provide me with, just a small, sample ascii data file - that actually reads into 'Add xy data', and will allow me to select X- and Y-fields from the drop down menu's.

Thanks in advance
