I have an attribute table with demographic data for "counties" and need to make each field a layer. For example "POP2000" needs to be it's own layer. It's easy with rows but can't figure out the columns...

Add the data multiple times to your map, and set the symbology based on the columns you are interested in. So point the first copy to set the symbology based on POP2000, the next copy in the table of contents to use POP2001, etc. No need to break the data apart.

Hi Caroline,

Are you looking to create a feature class for each column in the attribute table?  If so, you can run the Feature Class to Feature Class tool and delete the fields from the Field Map section that you do not want to include.
