searching subfolders

Has anyone discovered/invented an easy way to get components in subfolders to be automatically found when opening an assembly that references them? My situation is migrating from using PDM WORKGROUP, to SOLIDWORKS PDM STANDARD, having a sophisticated folder system for library components, mirroring the project structure we had built in the WORKGROUP vault. The process of building this folder structure in the new SOLIDWORKS PDM STANDARD vault was relatively painless as it turned out, but opening assemblies in the new vault for the first time and using the search tool to find each component not in the same folder as the assembly, is prohibitively cumbersome.
