I have X and Y GPS coordinates in an excel spreadsheet and I am trying to add the data to my map. The coordinates are formatted as numbers in excel. When I click the add data tool in the map tab and fill out the parameters, I got a warning that said 

WARNING 100160: Some of the features have invalid geometry and have been removed from the result
WARNING 000192: Invalid value for rows: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

use excel to table

Excel To Table (Conversion)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

and check out

Work with Microsoft Excel files in ArcGIS Pro—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

make sure that your data are in decimal degrees (assuming you have measured longitude/latitude

and that X is Longitude  and Y is Latitude.  (corrected)

No DMS format ... just decimal degrees

If you are using a Projected coordinate system then make sure you know the coordinate system since you will have to define it at some stage

Dan,

Just a small correction. X is Longitude and Y is Latitude.

@Kraused3 : In case the issue persists, please share a sample of the Excel Sheet that you are using.
