Hello-
I have a shapefile with polygons of sampled wetlands. I want to separate the shapefile into a series of shapefiles of each sampled wetland. I know I can select each individual feature within the attribute table and use Export Data>Selected features to create each shapefile, but I was hoping there was a tool of some form that would do it (There are 36 features in the original shapefile, so not a ton but enough that I don't want to have to do each individually).
Thanks for your help!

Hi Laura,

Greetings!

You may want to look at the Split Layer By Attributes tool available at the ArcScripts.

Hope this help.

Thanks!

You can basically create a geoprocessing model.

You can use the select tool and create feature class to load the specific data into the new FCL.
