I will try to explain... I have one shape (Districts) with 40 values (40 districts)...
I need to create 40 shapes now... one shape per District.
I can do this manual... one by one... using the tool export data (selected by atributte)...

How can I make this 40 shapes automaticly???
Do we have a tool for this purpose? Just with Python? Suggestions?

Thank you very much.

If your ultimate goal is to make a series of maps, one for each of the 40 districts, you could look into Data Driven Pages. This allows you to make a "book" of maps with the same symbology from a single feature class of multiple features. I do this for watersheds feature classes.

Hi,

Take a look at the following 10.0 model that can be run as a GP tool.
