It would be nice to filter data/features in table/feature class within ArcCatalog.  A Query Builder of some kind would be nice.  Similiar to ArcMap.

As far as I know this is not possible for feature classes, which ArcCatalog displays.  Feature classes exist in ArcCatlog independent of all layers and have no query bulding capabilities.  Desktop never displays a feaure class directly like ArcCatalog does and always display feature classes as feature layers only.  Only feature layers have query builder functionality.  I think this would only be possible within ArcCatalog through a saved layer file created by Desktop.

So similiar in an ArcMap session where you add feature classes in your table of conents and you have the option to build a query to filter features (or records if it's a table).  Same functionality would be nice in (ArcCatalog within the Preview tab).
