Hi all,

I have an Excel .xlsx file that has X,Y-coordinates of 65 points/locations (WGS84):
id           Name              POINT_X                        POINT_Y  
0            DH-1              -77.06710444370            38.86984392600
1            DH-2              -77.06646496950            38.87006592120
.             ....                ....................               ....................
64          DH-65             -77.06323586100            38.86909389460

How can I use a Python-ArcPY script to import these X,Y-coordinates of 65 points/locations (in WGS84) into a File Geodatabase in my ArcGIS 10.1?  Please kindly help and give me the detailed instructions for importing the data to create the Point feature in the .mxd MAP.

Thanks,
Scott Chang
