Where Used and CAD Objects

Pro/E WF3-M230 PDMLink 9.1 M040

Anyone having fun with the Where Used command in PDMLink?

The command is intended to work only through the WTPart. So Where Used applies to BOMs of WTParts. But it does not apply to CAD Objects (EPMDocs). Our system has no WTParts. You can find single level Where Used of a CAD Object sometimes if there's a direct dependency OR you can sometimes find it through Related Objects-CAD Dynamic Documents but it's hit and miss AND it's only one level deep. PTC's documentation (and their replies) basically say it's only through the WTPart that a correct Where Used will work.

Are there others that are frustrated with this? Anyone made special Query Builder reports that do a EPMDoc Where Used?

Thanks,
