I have shape-file with next attribute table: enter image description here - name of features, unique number for each feature of layer I must split shape-file by NAME field, but in result in attribute tables of layers should be only unique number column (see picture): enter image description here

Split layer by Name I create in QGIS. Is there any solutions delete column "Name" in many shapefiles (about 800). I use ArcGIS, QGIS, PostGIS, OGR... Thanks!

You need to write small script in (Python for Q-GIS or ArcGIS) OR if you are using ArcGIS then in Arctool box right click on field and click on batch processing and insert all file names and delete the column..thanks –  Sunil Dec 14 '12 at 10:56
