pro/library access

Has anyone been successful in utilizing the Pro/Library Access module to
create a catalog listing of all files in a directory structure in order to
circumvent search paths.

I was reading up on TPI 115744 and exploring ways to improve file
retrieval / performance and wanted to know if this would be a waste of
time or if there are any success stories out there.

I know of two basic limitations:
1) only 1 version can exist in the directory structure
2) instances cannot be retrieved from a file > open dialog unless the
generic name is included. You can build a master index file limited to
3456 rows to allow just the instance name to be typed in, unfortunately we
have about 10 times as many instances.

Thanks in advance for any responses.
Scott
