Adding excel spreadsheet information to a map

Question asked by iamravlag on Feb 17, 2014

I am new to ArcGIS and I am trying to add information (vendor names and addresses) to a map.

I have made an excel spreadsheet with the two first columns being latitude and longitude, followed by the rest of the information. When I do this, however, the following error message pops up: "File does not seem to contain fields with point coordinates". The lat and long info I've put is in decimal format, so, from what I've read, it should be in the correct format.

The spreadsheet is saved in .csv format. Are the spaces between names an issue with the .csv formatting? How can I format my information in order to successfully upload my table?

Any help on this issue is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
