Ok I swear I used to do this easily in 9.3, but for some reason I am not able to figure this out.

  I have a shapefile that I have gone in and symbolized using the Unique Values, Many Fields.  I want to just export those ones I have symbolized to a new shapefile. 

  When I export, I get everything even if I have the (all others) in the symbology turned off.

  Without making a huge long Definition query or a long selection filter to select things as I have 23 filters using a combination of 2 categories, how can I easily export just what I have defined in the symbology?

  I can't figure out how I used to do this and it has got to be something really simple I'm forgetting.
