I am trying to use Arc's (v.10.2) "Convert Coordinate Notation Tool" to convert UTM coordinates into WGS84. The UTMs are in one column of an Excel spreadsheet as follows:
UTM 346677 E 5293198 N 345854 E 5294018 N
Tool Parameters fed to the tool:
Input Table: Sheet1$ Input Coordinates System: NAD 83 Output Feature Class: location of my chosing Output Coordinate System: WGS 84 Input Coordinate Format: UTM_ZONES X Field: UTM Y Field: grayed out Output Coordinate Format: DD_2
When I run the tool I get the generic error
"ERROR 999999: Error executing function. Failed to execute (ConvertCoordinateNotation)."
so I don't know for sure what the problem is but my first thought was that it might be that the tool doesn't like the format of the UTMs in my table. Esri's documentation for the tool didn't offer any direction on proper UTM format, saying only:
UTM_ZONES —The letter N or S after the UTM zone number designates only North or South hemisphere.
So, is there a problem with the UTM format in my table?
