Below is the default FSX approach which the GPS uses to PABT for the LOC/DME Rwy 01 approach with D117L transition. This approach is based upon the April 2005 date of the FSX navigation database.
It includes the missed approach and the hold pattern.
The HORAG waypoint and the approach your chart shows was created after the FSX database date.
The D117L transition is close to the HORAG transition for the LOC/DME Rwy 01 approach, but used the 117 radial not the 124 radial.
I assume you are flying on VatSim or another on-line system. As noted above - inform the controller you are unable to use that waypoint.
I don't fly often on VatSim but my experience in the real world is that when cleared to a specific waypoint, that means a direct course from my present location to the waypoint. I would have altered my heading to point as close as I could figure to where I thought the 124 radial would be at 12 DME - maybe a couple miles farther out.
But I would also have looked up the GPS approaches in FSX and have checked them against the approach chart so that I knew the HORAG transition was very close to the D117L transition.
I could have punched the LOC Rwy 01 Approach with D117L transition into the default GPS and it would have flown me directly to the waypoint, and then flew the arc and lined me up on the localizer.
