I am trying to import an Excel table with around 10,000 XY points into ArcMap 10.2. I am using State Plane NAD 1983 Alabama West (US Feet) as the Coordinate System in my map data frame. I then add the excel table to my Table of Contents in the map then select Display XY Data. Next, I choose the same coordinate system as my data frame then select OK. Once it creates the Events layer for my points they are not in the correct location.
Should I switch everything in my map to WGS84 or is there a solution for my points to be added onto my current map with the state plane coordinate system?
