Saving Queries

Being new to Map 3D, I'm wondering if and how it's possible to save queries. I have a drawing consisting of shape files showing a particular area of a map. On this map I have different features such as roads, houses, etc. I want to do a series of queries and save the results of each one. So if I was to do, say, ten queries, I would have ten drawings. What is the best way to do this?

1] in an empty drawing, type in _ADEDRAWINGS to attach the main map

2] _ADEQUERY to perform the first conditional "draw" query

3] _WBLOCK and save as e.g. QUERY-1

4] erase all

5] repeat the #2 point with the next query condition

6] _WBLOCK and save as e.g. QUERY-2

7] erase all ... and so on, up to QUERY-10
