**X/Longitude**and**Y/Latitude**fields, or the**MGRS**field. - To enter a relative point:
- Enter the distance of the point from the absolute point in the
**Distance**field. - Enter the bearing of the point relative to the absolute point in the
**Bearing**field. - Select the point from which the distance and bearing are defined from the
**From Point**list. - Enter a description for the point in the
**Point Description**field. - Do one of the following:
- To save the point and close the Point window, click the
**OK**button. - If you entered a relative point, the coordinates for the point are calculated based on the distance and bearing that you entered.
