Hello, so I am working on getting the distance between multiple points, using the "Point Distance" tool.  But I am running into an error others seem to have, and the solutions do not seem to be working.

I know my data must be projected in a certain way to get the correct output (so if I want the distance output in meters the data must be projected in meters.  I have used the Project Tool to have the data projected in the Florida State Plan with meters being the unit of measurement.  However, the output table from running the distance tool still appears to be degrees. 

Any help would be appreciated. I have trouble shooted with every other forum suggestion I could find, but it still doesnt work.
