Distance between points in two shapefiles

I am trying to get the distance between the points in two datasets. For this I have created two point feature shapefiles using the corresponding two datasets. Now, to get the distance between the points, I have used the point distance tool under Analysis Tools>Proximity Analysis. However, for some reason the process is failing is failing. I have defined the coordinate system for the point features as a projected coordinated system (UTM NAD 1983 17N).

The specific error was 999999 which was error in executing the function. Can someone please suggest a solution for this issue.

PS: There is no specific sub forum for Analysis tools. As such, I have posted my query under this section.
