Problem: Unable to remove points in ArcGIS Business Analyst


In ArcGIS Business Analyst, points can be added to the map by importing Excel and .csv files up to 5 MB in size.

However, after adding the points to the map and saving as a layer, the 'Remove these points' option is unavailable for the selected points, as shown in the image below.

The Remove these points option is unavailable
