Thanks, Kapil. I'll give it a try.  I have a feeling I may be wasting my time 
anyway, as I don't see any way to have the dynamic roles be applied for catalog 
queries.  In other words, if I have object A and object B in the same folder, 
and user1 can access object A but not B based on the external condition, user1 
should see A  but not B in a folder listing, search, navigation, etc.  Is there 
amy way at all to implement this functionality?

Thanks again,
