I run ModelBuilder 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 5000 km.

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 stored 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 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
