No selection layer is created and nothing is added to a map when you attempt to use the Create Layer From Selected Features option in ArcMap.
You cannot create a selection layer from a layer that points to a read-only personal geodatabase.
You need to obtain write access to your personal geodatabase, but if you are unable to do so, you may be able to use a Definition Query instead of a Selection Layer. A Definition Query will only be a useful substitute if your selection is described using an attribute query.
Right-click on the layer and go to Selection.
