Records Not Recognized in Attribute Table

I am having trouble getting ArcMap to recognize other data from an imported excel spreadsheet.  It is able to map the longitude and latitude information from those specified columns.  However, when you open the attributes table of the spreadsheet, all columns are blank.  The columns are formatted as either text or number in excel and have no inappropriate character such as question marks, colons, or slashes.

Since there appear to be no records in the table, I am unable to export the information as a shapefile from the inputted excel table.  Thus, I cannot do anything further with this information other than map the XY points as ArcMap is essentially not recognizing that there is more data in the spreadsheet.

Any suggestions, please?
