Geocoding address gave weird x/y values?

Hi all, I need your help! I recently did some geocoding of addresses in ArcMap where I had to manually match over 200+ records and the output gave me these x & y's. Anyone have any idea how I can rectify this and get it in DD?

My map is in NAD_1983_StatePlane_North_Carolina_FIPS_3200_Feet

Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_North_American_1983.

The feature class is in:

Dear JessMille,

I hope you are doing well,

You can check the repository of my Github in the below link, there is a very simple python script which you can convert from Web Mercator (WKID 3857) to WGS84 (latitude and longitude) and vice versa.

Hope it helps,

Best wishes

Thank you so much for the response!

I was looking at your script and I have absolutely no knowledge of Python. I tried to copy and paste the script, which I can't and suspect that's the way it is. Would you please be so kind as to tell me how to do this, as in make this work? I did try and save it as a python script and loaded into ArcMap but threw an error for line 1 -->Parsing error SyntaxError: invalid syntax (line 1)

I am way out of my depth for python.

Dear JessMille,

No worries, if you can prepare me a small portion of your dataset of coordinates or a part of your feature class, I can write a python script and you can run on your dataset.

Best regards

@JessMiller1 What locator was used to geocode your table? If you are using a custom locator based on reference data that has a projection of NAD_1983_StatePlane_North_Carolina_FIPS_3200_Feet, then the locator will output the result in that coordinate system. The coordinates in your screenshot are US Feet. There are a few things you can do :

1. In the Geocode Addresses dialog specify a different coordinate system for the output.

2. If using the Geocode Addresses geoprocessing tool, click environments button and expand output coordinate system and specify a geographic coordinate system

3. You could use the Project geoprocessing tool to reproject the geocode result to a geographic coordinate system like WGS 1984, then use the result in the Add XY Coordinates tool.
