    This problem can be solved in a much easier way. just have a better naming system for your parts/assemblies/drawings. example: I have a chair, the full assembly could be called "Chair, Assembly" then each part can be called things like, "Chair, Left Arm, Part" or "Chair, Left Arm, Drawing" a descriptive name can make a ll the difference, and the computer will store them alphabetically which is nice for organization. you could also try numbered names. Example: the chair is Item number C3582, but each component part would be C3582-01, C3582-02. And even then you can add text so, C3582-01 (Left Arm), C3582-02 (Right Arm). Also the folders you store files in. One assembly, one folder.
