We have recently transitioned from PDM/Works Workgroup to PDM/Works Enterprise and I've hit a little bit of a snag (hopefully the last one).

In Workgroup, we had fairly large project folders, but when you browsed you saw a well organized tree structure that made it easy to find what you are looking for, now all I see is a giant list of files (there's about 7000 of them in one project). As you would imagine, pulling this list up is awfully slow in the File/Open dialog of SW, plus there's no real logic unless you know the specific file you are looking for.

I would like to get some suggestions as to how to organize our vault better - maybe put all the drawings into one folder? Break the bigger sub-assemblies up into their own folders? Am I the only with this problem (hopefully not)?

Thanks for any help in advance!
