If you add the attached shapefile to ArcMap first, it will set the data frame to 0-360 in WGS84. If you want to use a different GCS, use the Define Projection Tool to change the coordinate system.

Thanks very much! it works.
Now I only still have the problem, that the layer Grid doesn`t show the same coordinates.
They still display in 180°W-180°E
Do you/anybody have a furhter hint for me.
Thank, andrea

Hi Andrea,

Do you mean in layout view, adding a graticule to the map? That functionality was never added to allow it to label 0-360. You might have to create the grid, but unlabelled and label it by hand or use the Create Fishnet tool to generate a graticule, but again it would have to be labelled manually.
