Alex, thanks, this is very helpful

1) put x into aFilteredPlayListIndex[z]
(there's no need to replicate all the data when the array will continue to 
exist, just keep the indices you want).

awesome… I think I could increment the  z from 1  up and then my clickline 
number will still work.

2) "create an in-memory SQLite Database."

 this is news! Where do we find docs on this? right now the SQLite data base is 
in

 specialFolderPath("documents")/jnanam.sqlite

how do you "create in memory?

    Plan A.   use your database
    
    Plan B.   create an in-memory SQLite database.
    
    Plan C. use an array, kind of like you are doing.
    
    And *only* if there are good reasons for not doing Plans A or B, then :
    
    C1.  Instead of
    
    repeat for each key x in aPlaylist
            repeat for each key y in aPlayList[x]
        
    
    do
    
    repeat for each key x in aPlaylist
            repeat for each element ey in aPlayList[x]
    
    Also, instead of
         put aPlayList[x] into aFilteredPlayList[z]
    
    do
         put x into aFilteredPlayListIndex[z]
    (there's no need to replicate all the data when the array will continue to 
exist, just keep the indices you want).
    
    
    C2. Did you really mean "check *all* columns in the array" ?
    Should it not be "check all the 'properties' columns" ?
    If so - that's another reason to use a/the database :-)
    
    C3. Create an 'allproperties' column ?
    There's probably a fast/easy way to do that either in the database, or as 
you extract from it - but a database expert would have to tell us how to do 
that.
    
    Alternatively, when you extract, just do
    
    repeat for each key x in aPlayList
       repeat for each item y in thePropertyColumns
           put aPlayList[x][y] & SPACE after aPlayList[x]["allproperties"]
       end repeat
    end repeat
    
    or, delay this until first search :
    
    repeat for each key x in aPlayList
        if aPlayList[x]["allproperties"] is empty then
           repeat for each item y in thePropertyColumns
               put aPlayList[x][y] & SPACE after aPlayList[x]["allproperties"]
           end repeat
           if aPlayList[x]["allproperties"] is empty then -- so that subsequent 
searches never rebuild this
             put SPACE into aPlayList[x]["allproperties"]
           end if
        end if
        if aPlayList[x]["allproperties"] contains pFilterPattern then
          put x & CR after z
        end if
    end repeat
    
      
    Alex.
