Projection and distance units

Hello, I wonder if someone can help.  I have three map layers where the point coordinates are in lat/long (WGS 1984).  I've displayed them using the TWD_1997_TM_Taiwan national grid projection and the map units are set to meters - that's all fine.  But when use the 'generate near table' tool the distance measurements that are output are not in meters, they seem to be in decimal degrees.  Does anyone know how to output from the near tool in meters?  Many thanks in advance.
