I added california counties shapefile in ArcMap using add data option, I changed the color of counties using properties -> Symbology. I tried to export it to a shapefile using export data. It did create a shapefile and other supporting files, but it didn't save the coloring...whole map was same as my input shapefile with a single color.

How should I preserve the colors when I export it to a shapefile?

Appreciate quick reply.
