Hello ,

i have a polygon shapefile

i would like to be able to use a tool in ARC that will split the master Poygon into smaller polygons based on an Attrubite such as the district/state, country Etc

At the moment i making an defination query and showing 1 district at a time , then creating a layer from this.

I was wondering if there is a tool that will give me an out of several new shapefiles , potentially named after the attribute it has taken the name from

i am aware there is a split tool , but my company does not have this licence

Does anyone have any ideas ?
