Create Features in another Feature Class if value is not <Null>

Hey there!
I have a problem which i cannot solve on my own.

I have many polyline features in my feature class. Every feature has columns for (relative) paths (-> I have attachted a screenshot for better explanation). Now I want to create a feature for every single link with the same geometry, e.g. a feature has 6 links -> the script (or function, or whatever) should create 6 features which have the same geometry (and every feature should provide 1 link) in another feature class.

The reason for this is, that I have some water pipes and arcgis can just support one field for the hyperlink tool, so if i have 6 features overlapping each other, a window will appear and shows me all 6 links and not just 1. The user will not see the 6 features.

I hope it is clear what I try to do 🙂

Thanks for the fast answer!

Today I have successfully done what I've tried to do. I've done it with the "select extract" tool (and some other tools for creating/deleting fields and stuff) and the merge tool in model builder. Helped me a lot, this was the function I was searching for, but I couldn't find it before.

Thanks to you!
