Posting my response to the following ArcGIS ideas request as others may not visit the ideas section:
[INDENT]Idea Title : Add support for DMS, MGRS, UTM, etc. in Add XY Data and the link is : http://ideas.arcgis.com/ideaView?id=08730000000bmhi[/INDENT]


MY Response:
ESRI - When XY (and Z) coordinates are used for input values - ALL tools should understand the various coordinate units.  The "Go To XY" tool (in ArcGIS Desktop) understands multiple coordinate units, so it makes sense that ALL other ArcGIS tools should too.


So, what are your thoughts?
