    The Data Import Wizard will do this.

    It will give you a window where you select what each column is. Typically, MapPoint would find city, state, zipcode; and you can use this window to verify the columns have been selected correctly.
    However, two of the options are longitude and latitude.
    Set these for the two coordinate columns.

    MapPoint uses (+) positive North latitudes. (South = (-) )
    and (-) negative West longitudes. (East = (+) )

    MapPoint also uses the WGS84 geoid. If you don't know what a geoid don't worry about it [WGS84 is a good global fit and is the default for most GPS receivers]
