Importing existing tree dataset coordinate issue


Hi all, I am new to Vectorworks,  so I am hoping this is a simple fix, where I have just missed a step along the way. 


I have downloaded some existing tree data for Bristol online. I have a xls file that I have converted to a tad delimited .txt file.  Within the file there are x and y column headers as well as id, names etc for many other parameters. 


I have created a new class and activated this , (i presume trees will use the activated class when created)


In the import existing tree box I have selected everything that makes sense, only adding relevant parameters, for me this is the coord and name. 


I click... and then it says that location information is missing i say yes anyway  and it puts all the information just off to the left of my current map.  X and Y are consistent with my geolocated map that i am working with.... 


Any ideas? Why the warning 


Many thanks in advance, 




Ah looks like its all being brought in using the internal origin. But my coordinates are fixed through the user origin, so what wouldnt x y data be brought in at the user?
