split by attribute

Is there a way of splitting a shapefile (point, line or polygon) on the basis of a particular field in the attribute table? I have a point shapefile which shows Points of Interests on the basis of different categories. I want to split the shapefile on the basis of those categories, so that I get separate point shapefile for each of those categories. Is there an inbuilt tool in ArcGIS 10 for that? The split tool won't help as it does it on the basis of another feature class, and that is not what I am looking for. I found this tool through my search online, but couldn't make it work. I am looking for a tool like this. Any kind of help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
