If you want the x and y coordinates for point data it’s fairly simple to do in QGIS 3.20. There’s actually two ways you can go about doing this. This is the easiest with the second being done in Field Calculator
Add your data to qgis.
Once it has been added open the processing tools and search for the add geometry attributes tool.
Execute the tool. It will create a new layer called Added Geometry Info. That will add a xcoord and ycoord column to your data.
The tools also gives you the option of adding the data’s projection or the projections specified in QGIS.
