I'm new to Arc. I'm trying to import an excel file, I've tried saving it as both a csv and txt file. It has fields for both longitude and latitude but when I go to add this layer it says "File does not seem to contain fields with point coordinates." Anything that I'm doing wrong? I've attached the file in xlsx. format in case that helps answer the question. Thank you in advance
