I am having some serious issues trying to convert a bit of data that I have stored in a text-file to a shape file. I have been looking around the forum trying to figure it out by myself, but to no avail. If I use the Create Feature Class -> From XY Table... function in ArcCatalouge, I either get an MySQL error or a general function error. What am I missing? Here is a snippet from the first few lines of the table, it is a local coordinate system:
x,y,z
99.233457,115.119713,9.763240
97.900566,114.653506,9.883462

Am I writing the heading wrong? Should there be anything else in the file?
