I have a table with some lat/long values, and am simply trying to create an xy event layer from them.  No matter what I do (format, projections, etc) they points will not create in the correct lat/long location.  I believe it's a 10.1 issue, and maybe bug, since I sent the data to a friend with 10.0 and he had no trouble what so ever.  I even followed his exact steps. 

Are there known issues with the xy event tool in 10.1?  Or any suggestions/pre processing I could do to make this work?
