How to filter WFS in ArcCatalog 9.3.1?

Hello,

I have access to a WFS service which contains a large number (250,000+) of features.  It takes a very long time to load into ArcMap and I'd like to be able to filter in the data for the end users as they will only want to see data specific to their program.  In version 10, there are options when creating the WFS connection parameters to a) set the Max # of Features & b) set a Filter in XML using the OGC comparison filters like this -

<ogc:Filter xmlns:ogc="http://www.opengis.net/ogc">
 <ogc:PropertyIsEqualTo matchCase="false">
  <ogc:PropertyName>SURVEY_ID</ogc:PropertyName>
  <ogc:Literal>1234</ogc:Literal>
 </ogc:PropertyIsEqualTo>
</ogc:Filter>


Is there a way to do this in 9.3.1?  There's a small textbox labeled 'filter' when you view the table list, but I've tried using the exact XML that works in v10 but I still get all the features.  Is this kind of functionality available in 9.3.1?  Most of our users will not be in v10 until this fall.

Thank you,

Terry
