I'm looking to break up polygons by an existing attribute,  the feature they were created around, into multiple different shapefiles. However, I'm struggling to find a tool which would achieve this. Is there a simple way to break them apart?

Thanks!

Split layer by attributes ... the original.. supposed to be available at all license levels in 10.5, but the link has been used for years and works with old versions as well

I can't find split layer by attributes in ArcGIS 10..8, has the name been changed?

Also attaching the integrated GP tool Split by Attributes - ArcMap, which I guess, got inspired from Dan_Patterson‌'s work.
