You have to convert the cells to points, then symbolize the points as arrows rotated according to the direction attribute.
thanks for your response. it works for me now:)
Good news, they are creating a "field renderer" in 10.3 - demo's at the 2014 EsriUC. This renderer will do what the old ArcInfo GRIDDIRECTION command did, and much more! Can't wait!
