ADD X,Y DATA TOOL

I am trying to add x,y data to my ArcMap project. I have an excel spreadsheet that has easting and northing feilds. I have imported these types of spreadsheets before with no problem. But, occasionally I run into the problem that ArcMap drops data when adding the x,y data. Currently it drops the Easting data and fills it with zeros. I assign a datum to the data to be added but for some reason the tool just doesn't want to work. Any Ideas?

Mapping Center Answer:

I tried using this tool recently and ran into no problems.  For this problem, since it seems to be sporadic, you should contact our Technical Support Team.  You can learn how to do that from right here on Mapping Center -- just click the Contact ESRI Technical Support tab.
