I run Model Builder program's VBSCRIPT The results I receive is like the original input coordinates but when I export to the arcmap

the distance between results and origin map is about 5000Km....

How to reposition it in the original place?

I check the results coordinates is similar to the source coordinates but the figure is shown so far!

How does that fix this mistake?

The source is store in a database with tables

so I can't set the project coordinates with tables...

did you give the XY event layer a projection info? –  artwork21 Jul 1 '11 at 11:29
uh....how? I just use it in the database but I don't know how to give it –  blueman010112 Jul 1 '11 at 13:28
export your XY event layer in ArcMap to a feature class or shapefile, then use the Define Projection tool. –  artwork21 Aug 15 '11 at 12:06
export using the feature to point tool/script. –  artwork21 Aug 15 '11 at 12:24
