Element Reference Search from PI Build

Is it possible to do an element and element reference search from PI Builder?

From the PI Builder Tools ribbon within Excel, I would like to search on a element and element reference based on a template.

Example: suppose I have list all my pumps in AF under a parent Pumps. But I also have an element Plants where I list out all my manufacturing plants and linked to each plant are element references for the pumps.


So my AF would look like:

Plants\plant01\pumpA (element reference)

Plants\plant01\pumpB (element reference)

Plants\plant02\pumpE (element reference)

Plants\plant02\pumpF (element reference)

Pumps\PumpA (element)

Pumps\PumpB (element)

Pumps\PumpE (element)

Pumps\PumpF (element)


Within Excel when I search on Elements where template = pumps, I only get the elements under Pumps. I would like to also get the element references.
